(ESPR) Neurot Recordings will release a special three-way split CD in tribute to late American folk music hero Townes Van Zandt this June.
The tribute will feature contributions from Scott Kelly (Neurosis, Shrinebuilder, Tribes of Neurot, solo artist, etc.), Steve Von Till (Neurosis, Tribes of Neurot, Harvestman, solo artist, etc.) and Scott "Wino" Weinrich (Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, The Hidden Hand, Shrinebuilder, solo artist, etc.).
After having performed material by Van Zandt solo and through various collaborations on stage over recent years, on solo releases and on random live collaborations, the aptly entitled Songs of Townes Van Zandt brings several songs each from Kelly, Von Till and Weinrich together in praise of his deep musical influence on them all. Through a personal contact of the artists, newly-formed label My Proud Mountain was founded specially in order to release this tribute, with Neurot Recordings handling the North American release of the album on June 12th.
