Mike Patton Produces A New Classic

Mondo Cane, is turning out to be an album of many firsts for Mike Patton, the front man of influential bands such as Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Peeping Tom and Fantômas. Not only is the album Patton's first Italian language release as well as his first outing with a full orchestra, the album also finds him landing on Billboard's Classical Album chart for the first time.

Mondo Cane which was released by Ipecac Recordings on May 4, entered the Billboard Classical Album chart at # 2, an unexpected twist on a chart that regularly features the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Il Divo.

The eleven-song album was years in the making with Patton selecting pieces from the great Italian composers and pouring over every detail for this labor of love. As Patton described the process himself, his motivation was to showcase the music's persistent relevance through "modern and adventurous interpretation."

A live performance of the album's first single, Gino Paoli's "Il Cielo In Una Stanza," can be found - here
