Musical accompaniment to the recent novel of the same name by Glen Duncan

Trending Now

Is this the first book soundtrack? Stephen “(The Real) Tuesday Weld” Coates’ sophomore album investigates what it is to be human. Lucifer is given a chance to redeem himself on contemporary Earth, finding himself reincarnated as a depressed writer interrupted in mid-suicide. Coates’ dream-like, softly crooned vocals hover between optimism and melancholy, backed by an inspired sampling of ghostly jazz 78s in collision with breakbeats.

Meticulously arranged, touching, intimate, and with mesmerising melodies, this is superbly atmospheric.
