Museum of Loneliness is a 12″ LP by Chris Petit composed of specially-recorded readings from his novels Robinson (1993), The Hard Shoulder (2001) and The Passenger (2006), and from his recent project The Museum of Loneliness. Backed by field recordings and soundtracks from his films Asylum (2000) and Content (2010), the album was smeared and spored by Mordant Music. Front cover and inner sleeve artwork is by Emma Matthews.
The album will be released on 1st March 2013 in an edition of 600 copies and is available for pre-order now.
A special edition of just 15 copies is also available, in which each copy includes a previously unpublished Museum of Loneliness pamphlet with holographic material by Chris, as well as an exclusive DVD of Content and a print of a painting by Emma.
