Internationally Renowned Musician JOZEF VAN WISSEM Releases New Single In Partnership With CLEOPATRA RECORDS!


Los Angeles, CA - He’s been called the most well-known lute player in the western world, earning immense critical praise from Pitchfork, NY Times, NPR and others and collaborating with a wide range of accomplished artists including Zola Jesus, Jarboe of Swans, film director Jim Jarmusch, and many more. Now, Jozef Van Wissem has found a new partner in L.A.-based indie label Cleopatra Records, through which Van Wissem will release his newest single, a stunningly dark and gothic take on the ‘70s folk classic by America “Horse With No Name.” Van Wissem draws out all the underlying themes of isolation and mental instability with his hauntingly visceral take on the song, his deep baritone voice contrasting with the lightness of the lute, which adds a baroque quality to this American classic.

“Cleopatra Records asked me to do a yacht rock cover from a playlist. My natural inclination was to decline since the material was too happy and suntanned. But then I took a closer look at the lyrics of “ A Horse With No Name.” I think it fits perfectly with the times. Musically I wanted to strip it down so there’s only two chords played on a 12 string electric guitar and baroque lute with effects. But to me the song is more about the character lost in dystopia. Or maybe it’s about heroin.” -  Jozef Van Wissem
