    Released in spring 2008 in Europe, the second collaboration by former Belle and Sebastian mainstay Isobel Campbell and ex-Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan was released in an expanded American edition later that year. The U.S. edition of SUNDAY AT DEVIL DIRT adds five songs to the original track lineup: "Fight Fire With Fire," "Asleep On A Sixpence," "Violin Tango," "Rambling Rose, Clinging Vine," and "Hang On." The new material is of a stylistic piece with the original 12 songs, which conceptually invert the classic Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood collaborations of the 1960s: Campbell writes and arranges the country and blues-influenced chamber pop tunes, while the gruff-voiced Lanegan sticks to singing.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.85) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Nearly every song on their second collaboration -- but particularly the brooding 'Salvation' and sweetly melancholy 'Trouble' -- reveals gorgeous comfort in the juxtaposition."
    Alternative Press (p.124) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The] overall effect of Lanegan up front and Campbell in the middle distance -- angelic, ethereal, almost intangible -- is the magic that makes their collaboration so memorable."
    CMJ - "[T]he low, raspy voice of Mark Lanegan sounds closer to Tom Waits than his previous Queens of the Stone Age work..."
