Chris Isaak

For First Comes the Night—Isaak’s stunning first album of new material in six years—this gifted singer-songwriter and bandleader is bringing us a bumper crop of strong and intriguing songs from which to choose. “There was no mission for this album other than to follow the songs,” Isaak explains, “and in terms of songwriting, the floodgates really opened this time. My last release was my tribute to Sun Records with a lot of covers—so this time around I had a lot of new material that I was thrilled to record.”
