Musician and composer Barry Adamson has announced the release of Memento Mori, an anthology spanning the artist’s work between 1978-2018, on October 26 on the Mute label. The collection chronicles Adamson’s 40 year musical career from his 1978 debut with Magazine and the early years of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds to his nine solo albums and soundtrack work for directors including David Lynch and Oliver Stone. A video starring Minnie Driver for “The Man With the Golden Arm” from his first solo album, 1988’s Moss Side Story, was recently re-discovered and released in high definition.
A pair of special live performances at Manchester’s RNCM Theatre and London’s Union Chapel, which the artist describes as “Not to be missed,” will accompany the release. Memento Mori (Anthology 1978-2018) is available for pre-order in CD, digital, and limited edition gold vinyl formats via the Mute webstore.
