Jozef van Wissem returns, announces It Is Time for You to Return

Come next month, baroque-wave master and one of People Magazine’s “Top 25 Cutest Lutists” Jozef van Wissem will release his 11th solo album It Is Time for You to Return. Return arrives December 2 via Belgian label Crammed Discs and upholds the tradition of Jozef really knowing how to name an LP (i.e. A Rose by Any Other Name (Anonymous Lute Solos of the Golden Age), Concerning the Entrance Into Eternity).

The album is part of Crammed’s “Made to Measure” series, a three-decade-old and running composer series that asks artists to score music for other media (real or imaginary). Return features nine new tracks of van Wissem shredding the 24-string and includes several songs with van Wissem on vocals (a first for the composer’s 14-year-old solo career). Additionally, Return also includes contributions from Domingo Garcia-Huidobro (of Föllakzoid), Jim Jarmusch, and Yasmine Hamdan (both of who appeared alongside van Wissem on the Only Lovers Left Alive soundtrack).

Watch the video for the first single “Love Destroys All Evil” below:
