This is incredible unexpected. And I was so ready to give album of the year to Frank Ocean. Things just got really interesting.

Bish Bosch is Scott Walker's first studio album since 2006's The Drift. Scott began writing new material around 2009 - whilst also scoring the ROH 2's Duet For One Voice ballet - recording it sporadically over the following three years. The end result is Bish Bosch, a tauter but more colourful experience than The Drift, with greater emphasis on processed, abrasive guitars, digital keyboards and thick silences. For the cover art, Scott worked closely with painter Ben Farquharson and designer Philip Laslett.
