KING CRIMSON’s JAKKO M JAKSZYK Releases “It Would All Make Sense” Video
Jakko M Jakszyk (King Crimson), recently announced the release of his forthcoming new solo album Secrets & Lies on October 23, 2020. He has launched a video for the track “It Would All Make Sense” which features Jakko joined by Gavin Harrison on drums and John Giblin on bass. Watch the video, created by Crystal Spotlight, below.
Jakko comments: “When the truth is staring you right in the face. But you just don’t want to believe it. When the evidence makes more sense than the lies. Then there comes a point, when - it would all make sense.”
Secrets & Lies contains 11 songs that explore topics suchc as obsession, betrayal, the shifting grounds of contemporary politics, and the tangled threads of family history, Secrets & Lies balances sensitive writing, musical technique, and accessible tunes cast in an impressively cinematic sound world. With three of the tracks, “Separation”, “Under Lock & Key” and “Uncertain Times” originating in King Crimson's writing sessions, the result is a mature work brimming with yearning melodies in symphonic or widescreen settings, fluid guitar work, and Jakko’s heartfelt, emotional vocals.
The album features Jakszyk joined by his King Crimson bandmates Robert Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Tony Levin & Mel Collins, as well as appearances from John Giblin (Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Simple Minds), Mark King (Level 42), Peter Hammill (Van der Graff Generator) and noted British comedian Al Murray.
Secrets & Lies will be released as a Limited CD+DVD Digipak (featuring 5.1 mix), Gatefold LP + CD & as Digital Album. The cover art was created by Sam Chegini, with design by Phil Smee.
