limited cd version with deluxe packaging. recorded in such disparate places as california, texas, louisiana, denmark, edinburgh and her native glasgow, 'hawk' is a pan-continental affair. there's folk, country, blues, gospel, dream-pop and a fair spoonful of southern soul. the album also finds campbell rejoined by mark lanegan, gruff sage of screaming trees and queens of the stone age fame, with whom she recorded the mercury-nominated 'ballad of the broken seas' (2006) and the smouldering 'sunday at devil dirt' (2008). there they duetted on wounded tales of loss, lust and regret, set amid an existential land of western noir and heightened americana.
