BLACK NEEDLE NOISE - New Single Featuring Anjela Piccard Now Released

Black needle Noise, a project by legendary artist and producer John Fryer has released a brand new single named "She Talks To Angels", out now via Cleopatra Records. The song features guest vocalist Anjela Piccard and with it these artists pay tribute to the Black Crowes with their own unique twist and stylistic trademark. "She Talks To Angels" is the first taste of the forthcoming album entitled These Mortal Covers, which will be released later this year.

John Fryer comments: "Always been a big fan of the Black Crowes and it always feels good to pay homage to bands you like. We wanted to give it a totally different and cinematic feel to the song in our version. Anjela's vocals are very heartfelt in her interpretation and delivery of the lyrics and being inspired by the cities of New Orleans and LA, the City of Angels."

Anjela Piccard adds: "There are moments in this life that are both catastrophic and quite triumphant. The intention in recording this song is one of reflection and understanding. At some point, we all can find ourselves in total relation to the lyrics and the instrumental flow of the track. As for myself, the New Orleans / Los Ánjeles connection remains an anchor of the heart, as both cities represent a long-standing spiritual melange - unparalleled in beauty and gracious acceptance of its people."

John Fryer is best known as being a part of the legendary act This Mortal Coil, he started his career in 1979 at London’s Blackwing Studios (London) and soon began working with seminal bands on the 4AD, Mute, Rough Trade and Beggars Banquet record labels, including Depeche Mode, The Wolfgang Press and Cocteau Twins. His achievement in helping develop the latter’s pioneering ethereal and ambient sound ultimately led Watts-Russell to recruit Fryer as his partner for This Mortal Coil.

John Fryer has also produced many groundbreaking artists along the way, including Love And Rockets, Swans, HIM, Cradle Of Filth, Clan Of Xymox, Nitzer Ebb, Dead Can Dance, Yaz (Yazoo), Xmal Deutschland, Fields Of The Nephilim, De/Vision, Stabbing Westward and many others. Over the past two decades, John Fryer has also produced several film soundtracks, including Seven, Clerks, Johnny Mnemonic, Mortal Kombat, Faust and Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Link
