Mark Lanegan goes old school and somber serious in his new song “Deepest Shade.” Close the blinds, put on low lighting and get serious with this song, Mark ain't messin' around.

Also check out his previously released song “I'm Not The Loving Kind.” Also check him out on the new Moby album.
Here's part of what Mark Lanegan said about Imitations
, “When I was a kid in the late sixties and early seventies, my parents and their friends would play the records of Andy Williams, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Perry Como, music with string arrangements and men singing songs that sounded sad whether they were or not. At home my folks were also listening to country music, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, George Jones and Vern Gosdin were some of our favorites. For a long time I’ve wanted to make a record that gave me the same feeling those old records did, using some of the same tunes I loved as a kid and some that I’ve loved as I have gotten older. This record is it. Imitations.”
