Losing Sleep

Edwyn Collins

Losing Sleep

LabelHeavenly Recordings
VertriebCooperative Music/Universal
VÖ-Datum17.9.2010

Die Geschichte von Edwyn Collins liest sich wie ein Drehbuch zu einem lebensbejahenden Drama. Ende der 70er startete er mit der Post-Punk-Band Orange Juice durch. Nach nur einem Album trennte sich die Band, Collins startete eine Solokarriere, die ihm 2003 mit A Girl Like You einen überraschenden internationalen Singlehit bescherrte, der bis heute nichts seiner Catchyness eingebüßt hat. Vor fünf Jahren dann der Schnitt. Collins erleidet zwei Schlaganfälle kurz hintereinander. Der Schotte muss alles neu lernen: lesen, schreiben, reden. Durch die schwere Zeit hilft ihm seine Frau und Managerin Grace Maxwell. Jetzt hat der heute 51-Jährige einen neuen Abschnitt begonnen. Das Album Losing Sleep ist sein siebtes, das erste, das er komplett nach den Schlaganfällen geschrieben und aufgenommen hat. Trotz des Schicksalsschlags bleibt er sich darauf treu: Er sucht noch immer nach dem perfekten Popsong. Und er kommt der Lösung unglaublich nahe.

Losing Sleep präsentiert sich sehr facettenreich, frönt genüsslich englischem Gitarrenpop in Perfektion und haut einen Ohrwurm nach dem anderen raus. Die Stimme von Collins ist ungebrochen charismatisch und unverwechselbar. Die Produktion lässt das richtige Maß an Unfeinheiten zu, so dass kein Song trotz des immensen Popappeal jemals zu glatt klingt. Der Titeltrack spielt mit Saxophon und „DoopDoop“-Chören. Humble beweist, dass Klaviere nicht nur melancholisch, sondern auch cool sein können. Bored hat einen genüsslich zelebrierten ironischen Unterton, I Still Believe In You ein unwiderstehliches Riff. Erst die letzten beiden Songs stimmen ruhigere, nachdenklichere Töne an und runden den Eindruck ab.

Mit Losing Sleep heißt Collins sich und vor allem uns zurück. Mit Johnny Marr, Franz Ferdinand, The Drums, The Cribs oder The Magic Numbers haben sich außerdem illustre Gäste um den Schotten versammelt, die den Songs den letzten Touch Abwechslung verpassen. Pop wie er sein sollte, aber natürlich nicht perfekt. Schließlich soll Collins noch einen Grund haben, mehr davon zu machen.
