Grammy and Tony award winning songwriter and composer Duncan Sheik is set to release Covers 80s Remixed on his own Sneaky Records/MRI on November 6. For this new offering, Sheik created a remixed edition of his 2011 album Covers 80’s in which he reinterpreted the stand-alone pop songs from his teen years along with the synth-pop era’s classic and obscure songs. The album includes tracks by Dépêche Mode, Thompson Twins, New Order, The Cure, Love and Rockets, The Smiths, Tears for Fears and more. For Covers 80s Remixed, Sheik enlisted Samantha Ronson, El-P, Gabriel & Dresden, Chico Mann, Terry Urban among others to decode these songs again. The album contains guest appearances from Holly Brook aka Skylar Grey and Rachael Yamagata. Sheik will begin a 30 date headline tour across the U.S. starting in November as part of this first annual “Sunset Sessions Tour,” and will be appearing at The Birchmere on Sunday, November 25!

Launching his musical career in 1996 with his self-titled debut, Sheik quickly earned a Grammy nomination for “Best Male Vocal” for his hit “Barely Breathing” which spent 55 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. He subsequently garnered critical accolades for his unique brand of folk-pop music with 2006’s White Limousine and his 2-CD collection of songs titled Brighter/Later: A Duncan Sheik Anthology. Sheik then composed the original score and collaborated with lyricist Steven Sater for 2007’s Spring Awakening, which went on to win eight Tony awards. Sheik alone earned two awards for “Best Orchestration” and “Best Original Score” as well as a Grammy award for “Best Musical Show Album.” He followed with musical theater production Whisper House, which was directed by Peter Askin (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and written by Kyle Jarrow. Sheik is currently working on stage productions of Brett Easton Ellis’ American Psycho and Hans Christian Andersen’s The Nightingale.
