Australia's SILVERCHAIR have finally revealed the full track listing for their forthcoming Diorama CD. It is as follows:
01. Across The Night
02. The Greatest View
03. Without You
04. World Upon Your Shoulders
05. One Way Mule
06. Tuna In The Brine
07. Too Much Of Not Enough
08. Luv Your Life
09. The Lever
10. My Favourite Thing
11. After All These Years
Legendary BEACH BOYS and U2 orchestral arranger Van Dyke Parks added his magic to three songs ("Across The Night", "Luv Your Life" and "Tuna In The Brine") while Paul Mac and MIDNIGHT OIL's Jim Moginie also played on the album.
Diorama sees SILVERCHAIR exploring lots of new ground including a much brighter lyrical outlook than that displayed on their previous works. The disc also really embraces melodies to create a disc which Rolling Stone magazine has already called “one of the boldest musical statements ever made by an Australian rock band.”
“No matter what people have got going on in their lives, hopefully when they play this album it will make them forget about everyday stuff. When music does that it's magical and, for me, that's what Diorama is about”, says Daniel Johns.
In other SILVERCHAIR news, the band's Australian record label, Eleven, announced that Diorama would be available in two different packages in Australasian stores.
The "Special Edition" will contain a 10 minute CD-ROM short film about the making of the album. This version will also include a bonus postcard, a slipcase and full color booklet. The "Special Edition" is expected to be stocked mainly by specialist music retailers.
The standard edition of the album contains none of the extra features and has normal album packaging. This version is expected to be carried mainly by chains and department stores.
