As wonderful as the world of Robert Wyatt may be, it’s not the sort of place where news tends to pop up at a head-spinning pace. So the latest developments regarding the U.K.’s coolest art rocker (we’re pretty sure Eno’s been out of the running for the title ever since producing Coldplay) should be more than enough to make fans lift their noses out of their Matching Mole collections and have a full-on Wyattack.
Not only is there a new Wyatt album to look forward to, there’s also a comprehensive reissue campaign in the works that will wind its way through almost the entire discography of the 65-year-old sonic adventurer, from his 1974 outing Rock Bottom all the way up to 2008’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane, and a collection of rarities including non-album singles, EPs, and soundtrack cuts. And once you’re done digging through those, you can catch yourself up on some fresh-from-the-oven Wyatt work, with For The Ghosts Within, which will see the light of day on Domino come November 9th. A collaboration with saxman Gilad Atzmon and violinist Ros Stephen, both of whom are composers themselves, Ghosts shows that even after making urgent, uncompromising music in six different decades, Robert Wyatt still resolutely refuses to stand still.
