Sidelined Lanois preps book, album

Lanois Musician-producer Daniel Lanois is still laid up from his June 5 motorcycle accident, and he has canceled dates with his latest group endeavor Black Dub. But Lanois will be very visible in the next few months via the band’s debut album and a marvelous new memoir.

On Oct. 26, Faber & Faber will release “Soul Mining: A Musical Life.” Lanois’ book is a slim but jam-packed work that bears some comparison to “Chronicles Volume 1,” the 2004 tome by Lanois’ former production client Bob Dylan. It’s a non-chronological ramble through the French Canadian musician’s life and career that is highlighted by fly-on-the-wall recollections of some of his’ most memorable sessions: Peter Gabriel’s “So,” Dylan’s “Oh Mercy” and “Time Out of Mind,” Emmylou Harris’ “Wrecking Ball,” Willie Nelson’s “Teatro” and several key U2 albums.
