    Hawk is the third collaborative album between former Belle & Sebastian songbird Isobel Campbell and former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan. Like the two records before it, it draws inspiration from the sultry torch songs once performed by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood. Unique to this album is a solid list of guest appearances, however, and the duo covers two Townes Van Zandt songs to boot.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin - 3 stars out of 5 -- "James Iha lends tastefully bluesy guitar. Overall, HAWK faithfully follows its predecessors' dusty Americana blueprint..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Campbell and Lanegan give themselves up to each song, creating a special, slow-burning intimacy.
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.56) - Ranked #21 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2010" -- "[They] reached an emotive peak on this, their third, darker, harder album."
    Pitchfork (Website) - "[They] have the sort of chemistry that nobody can fully explain. Their voices hang suspended in the air together, Campbell's feathery light and Lanegan's thick and downtrodden."
    Clash (magazine) - "They sound like they have been singing together for a million years....This time they also manage to rock out with some more bluesy and electric tracks."
    Uncut (magazine) (p.97) - 4 stars out of 5 -- ''Lately' offers an embarrassment of riches....It's a wonderfully uplifting finale to a finely conceived record, an eloquent testament to an unlikely partnership that's only now delivering its full potential."
