Loud Fast Words: The Soul Asylum Collected Lyrics

$ 18.95

The collected lyrics of one of the most beloved alternative rockers of the past thirty years, with insights into the creative process behind the songs

As the primary songwriter for Soul Asylum, Dave Pirner has penned hundreds of songs over the course of nearly four decades and has helped to shape the alternative-rock world through his artful lyrics and distinctive vocals. With twelve full-length studio albums under their belts, Pirner and Soul Asylum have produced songs that have captured multiple generations of music fans. Dave Pirner is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer, and longtime frontman for the band Soul Asylum, one of the most successful acts in alternative rock. When he’s not on tour, he splits his time between Minneapolis and New Orleans. The lyrics collected here represent Pirner’s life’s work (to date): nearly 150 songs printed in their full form, annotated by Pirner with his own recollections and reflections on the inspiration behind each song and what they mean to him and his career. Supplemented with photographs and reproductions of his handwritten lyric pages, Loud Fast Words reveals the creative process and the soulful spirit behind this impressive collection of songs.
