VIDEO: John Cale’s “Face To The Sky”

John Cale may not be the first name you think of when it comes to people making new music, but when it’s seen, it comes as a pleasant surprise. Here is the Velvet Underground man taking things in a slightly new way in “Face To The Sky”. What’s new about it? It’s dance pop, but done in an adventurous way, the only way Cale could do it, and it works. The song is from Cale’s forthcoming Double Six/Domino album called Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood, due out October 2nd.

Cale will be on tour through the new year, which includes a string of shows in New York City that will include a tribute to Nico, and two shows dedicated to his Paris 1919 album, which will celebrate its 40th anniversary next year. See him if you can, or make the effort to do so:
