Former Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, and Chris Cornell Band member Alain Johannes has not only found a lost homeland, but also musicians with a similar spirit with whom he can record in Chile. He has formed the Alain Johannes Trio, together with Cote and Felo Foncea.
The Alain Johannes Trio debuted a new single today titled “Luna A Sol” featuring Faith No More frontman Mike Patton (who is heard making choirs and secondary vocals).
‘Luna A Sol’, the first composition of Johannes in Spanish, will be available on streaming platforms on August 10 , but you can listen to it first through the Mundo Sonar broadcast.

Consequence of Sound reported last month that Faith No More frontman Mike Patton has released the unnerving score for Zak Hilditch’s equally unnerving adaptation of Stephen King’s 1922. Although the film premiered on Netflix back in September 2017, Patton has since worked with Ipecac Recordings to expand the score for a special release on “hardwood” colored vinyl, no doubt a reference to the rickety house that swarms with rats in the cold-blooded thriller.
Similar to his rustic work on Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines, this score thrives from a wealth of natural sounds and chilling strings, all of which could be misconstrued as one of those mysterious bumps in the night. That’s partly why Hilditch’s paranoid adaptation is one of the most effective translations of King to the silver screen, a remarkable feat in this epic renaissance for the Master of Horror.
