Scott Walker tells Genius to shove it, releases book of selected song lyrics

Ever find yourself listening to Scott Walker — the ever-evolving singer-songwriter, not that other one — and think, “Okay, yes, this is great, but what is he actually saying???”

It’s fine, let it out — we’ve all been there. Just know that you need not fear anymore, because Walker himself has curated Sundog, a 224-page collection of selected song lyrics. Yes, finally you can stop weeping into your keyboard and learn song lyrics in a way that would make your elementary school teachers proud: by reading a book.

Sundog is available now via Faber & Faber, and it contains an introduction from novelist Eimear McBride. It comes in deluxe, limited, and standard trade paperback editions — respectively suitable for the die-hard Scott Walker fan, the die-regular Scott Walker fan, or the person-who-has-never-heard-of-Scott-Walker-but-think-books-are-cool, in your life.

Learn more about Sundog by clicking this text right here. And just for fun, scroll down to listen to the very difficult to understand, but still very great Walker classic, “Dirty Synergy Tan.” Wait… *checks Sundog* sorry, that’s “30 Century Man.” (Whoa, makes so much more sense now…)
