25 years after its initial release, Julee Cruise's sophomore album The Voice of Love is being issued for the first time on vinyl and returning to print on CD, via Sacred Bones Records.
In 1992, after the release of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, David Lynch, Angelo Badalamenti and Julee Cruise returned to the studio with new compositions as well as the intent to craft previously instrumental score-based material from Fire Walk With Me and Wild at Heart into Julee Cruise songs. The result was 1993's final studio album The Voice of Love.
Three Demos is a very unique release, featuring the very first demo recordings for songs from Julee Cruise's initial LP with David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti, Floating Into the Night.
These early versions are fascinating glimpses into the genesis of what became Floating Into the Night and the minimal key ingredients that made the material alchemize. An early version of the album opener "Floating" originally began with a stunning spoken-word intro later dropped entirely from the album version. A revelation in their overarching simplicity, the three-song collection is devoid of the LP's additional arrangement flourishes, and yet still manages to present the same emotional depth charge with only voice, synthesizer and lyric.
