Dutch lute player and composer Jozef Van Wissem presents his album The Night Dwells in the Day. The ability to constantly extract something different and explore fresh terrain is evident throughout Van Wissem's sprawling back catalogue and up to his latest album, The Night Dwells in the Day. Over the years he's released countless solo albums stretching into double figures, there's been collaborations with Jim Jarmusch and Tilda Swinton, award-winning computer game soundtracks, along with award-winning film soundtracks, from Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive to Pierre Creton's 2023 film A Prince. The genesis for his latest album began during lockdown in Warsaw, where Van Wissem splits his time between Rotterdam. "The Call of the Deathbird" was the first song he wrote from the album and is the first to be shared. One of the relatively rare tracks that Van Wissem sings on -- along with some stirring and enveloping guest vocals from Hilary Woods -- his towering voice circles above the music much like the swooping deathbird he sings of. Normally Van Wissem writes all the music for one album within a confined period but this one song from a few years ago stuck around and took on a new lease of life and so joined a bunch of freshly written songs for the album.
