Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Los Angeles & Stockholm based dark rock musicians Johnathan|Christian release “I Walk This Earth Alone (The Leaether Strip Mixes) by Danish electro-industrial pioneer Clause Larsen, available beginning February 14th on iTunes, Amazon and at jchristianmusic.com
Of working with Clause Larsen, Johnathan Mooney says “(Leaether Strip’s) ‘Self-Inflicted’ was one of the first albums I heard from him back in 1997 and I’ve been a fan of his entire catalog ever since. So this really was a great opportunity for us.”
Clause Larsen concurs, “When I first listened to ‘I Walk This Earth Alone’ I was very happy to remix it. It’s a great song. I really love the songwriting and the vocals are pure sex. I never remix to “make a song better”. I always try to honor the song while taking it to a different place. Give it a new life to open it to other type of listeners. It was a real pleasure to be a part of this and I hope to do more with this great band”.
Once again, Johnathan|Christian worked with award winning horror illustrator Alex McVey to bring the vision to life.
Of working with Johnathan|Christian, Alex says “I feel a kinship to their themes; this was about coldness, a barren landscape, the coldness of the ground he walks on. Shadowing his pain and the crevices of his face”.
Johnathan|Christian’s “Beautiful Hideous” had an official release date 8 November 2013, and has already begun to hit mainstream media with considerable force, rave reviews and is available globally.
