Los Angeles, CA. (July 25, 2018) -
Directed by Ethan Hawke, BLAZE stars newcomer Ben Dickey as Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement whose unique artistic contributions gave rise to the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson and inspired both John Prine and Lucinda Williams. Loosely guided by the narrative of Foley cohort and co-conspirator, Townes Van Zandt, played by Bob Dylan band guitarist Charlie Sexton, the film weaves together three different periods of time, conflating Blaze's past, present and future in a poignant exploration of his love affair with Sybil Rosen, played by Alia Shawkat. Featuring an ensemble cast of inspired performers, the film explores the uniquely American art of storytelling through renditions of the Blaze Foley songbook, and examines the impact of both his art and his untimely death on his fans, friends, and collaborators.
An essential part of the story, the BLAZE: Original Cast Recording shines a light on Foley's enduring influence by compiling performances from the film that underscore the unvarnished beauty of its idiosyncratic protagonist. As the cameras rolled, the actors began to sing and the singers began to act, and what's captured on the record is the spirit of Foley and the film itself, most notably represented by the atmospheric noises of clinking beer bottles, birds, and the cast cheering each other on in the midst of a take. These hallmarks of natural conversation, of ebb and flow, are the makings of any good album - especially one made by a group of artists with a collective vision of creating something eternal, and doing it all, as Townes Van Zandt put it best, 'for the sake of the song.'
Featuring new recordings of classic Blaze Foley compositions and including a stirring rendition of the Lucinda Williams-penned tribute to Blaze, 'Drunken Angel,' performed by Alynda Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff, the Blaze: Original Cast Recording serves not only as a tribute to the power of Blaze's writing, but a worthy homage to his spirit as evidenced by Ben Dickey's contribution of the original song 'Blaze & Sybil's Lullaby,' composed by Dickey especially for the film and performed alongside co-star Alia Shawkat. Also included in the album's running order are new versions of some of Foley's best-known songs lovingly channeled by Dickey, including 'Clay Pigeons,' 'Picture Cards,' and 'Big Cheeseburgers and Good French Fries,' as well as tunes by Blind Willie McTell, Roger Miller, and Townes Van Zandt. Rounding out the deluxe gatefold LP package are extensive liner notes, including an essay by writer/director Ethan Hawke and a conversation with Ben Dickey and Foley's longtime companion and the film's co-writer, Sybil Rosen.
