David Sylvian - New Collection Sleepwalkers

David Sylvian's new collection of collaborations, Sleepwalkers, came out yesterday. Sylvian writes, "I hope you enjoy the work presented here, personally selected, remixed and sequenced and entirely remastered. These are the orphans, abused, estranged, exotic, migrating from diverse corners of the globe, brought together under one roof which they're learning to share despite their differences." Although there's only one unreleased song here, it still looks like a cool group of songs to me.

Here are some collaborations and remixes, I'm not sure if any of them will be in the same form on the album, but there you go.
