Dearly Beloved...

Jherek Bischoff and Amanda Palmer have come together once again to celebrate the life of one their musical idols, Prince. Following their tribute to David Bowie earlier this year, their spectral take on 'Purple Rain' was premiered on Pitchfork earlier today.

“Like with Bowie,” says Amanda Palmer, “We could think of no better action than to get into the studio, and mourn and feel Prince using the music.”

The pair covered the entire Purple Rain album for a New Year's Eve show in New York in 2012.

“When Prince passed away,” Jherek explains in a post on his blog, “We went back and forth about whether we should make something. We knew in our hearts that we wanted to, but it seemed like a bit much, so soon after the Bowie record. But losing Prince was just too much. Losing them both, just too much. Making the Bowie record had been so extremely therapeutic for us, and getting deep into those songs was such an intense and beautiful experience. It was no different working on this. It just gave me an even deeper love of one of the greatest musicians ever to walk this earth.”

The track is available to download from Amanda Palmer’s Bandcamp page, with all proceeds going to the Elevate Hope Foundation.

New Jherek Bischoff album Cistern
Published 03 May, 2016 by DM

Prodigiously talented multi-instrumentalist and composer Jherek Bischoff has revealed details of his new album Cistern. Gloriously cinematic, these modern orchestral recordings showcase Jherek’s unerring ability to pull at the heartstrings.

Born from time spent improvising in an empty two million gallon underground water tank, it is a record intrinsically linked to the space in which it was conceived. A space which forced Bischoff to slow down, to reflect, to draw on his childhood growing up on a sailing boat - an unexpected journey of rediscovery, from the city back to the Pacific Ocean via the Cistern.

Stereogum are premiering the title track now. Find a dark place, turn it up loud and immerse yourself completely.

Cistern will be released July 15th and is available to pre-order now on LP, CD and download from Jherek's Bandcamp and the Leaf shop.

Find all Jherek tour dates on our live page.
