Following up his double-album epic The Long Lost Story, NYC-based singer-songwriter David Bronson has now completed his new album Questions, which will arrive on January 15th, 2015 via Big Arc Records. Today, Bronson has made available an album trailer that includes snippets of the new album’s tracks, along with plenty of footage of its notable guest stars.
“Robin is one of the voices of David Bowie’s Young Americans and Carlos was the guitarist on some of Bowie’s biggest hits, including ‘Young Americans,’ ‘Heroes,’ and ‘Fame,’ which he co-wrote with Bowie and John Lennon,” Bronson explains of married showbiz legends Robin Clark and Carlos Alomar, who along with their daughter Lea-Lórien, are an integral part of Bronson’s band throughout Questions.
Besides being one third of the immortal backgrounds on Bowie’s landmark “plastic soul” album, Clark has lent her talents to recordings and performances by Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Michael Jackson, Al Green, Bruce Springsteen, and Beyonce, to name a few. In addition to more than twenty-five years on Bowie's most commercially and critically adored work, Carlos Alomar can be heard on records by Iggy Pop, Paul McCartney, and Alicia Keys, among many more.
As it was with The Long Lost Story, production for Questions was handled once again by Lou Reed producer Godfrey Diamond, who is also the man that turned the Alomars on to Bronson’s work. “When I mentioned Young Americans to Godfrey, I didn't actually expect him to bring in the actual singers from the record!,” Bronson exclaims.
It seems that the Alomars were more than happy to be there. “I love intelligent songs. Songs that are worth singing, songs that would stand the test of time,” says Carlos. “When I first heard David Bronson, iconic writers came to mind. Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Cat Stevens and dare I say it, even Bowie. Recording Questions was pure joy.”
David Bronson is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
