This is the first in a series of releases John Malkovich has planned with his collaborators, director/photographer Sandro and producer/composer Eric Alexandrakis. For Like a Puppet Show, Malkovich read Plato’s Cave Allegory (as interpreted by Alexandrakis) over an original piece of music. Then the results were sent to a bunch of musicians, who contributed remixes and interpretations, including Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon, OMD, Efterklang, Placebo, The Dandy Warhols, Blondie’s Chris Stein, the Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan, and more.
Like a Puppet Show is out on vinyl for Record Store Day‘s Black Friday event on November 27 2015.
