The Walker Brothers amassed a large following in the 1960s, almost matching Beatle-mania. They were responsible for hits like The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore and Make It Easy On Yourself. Over the 50 years that followed, Scott Walker changed course and generated more of a cult following with his album Scott 4. He spoke to the Today programme's reporter, Nicola Stanbridge about his new album, Bish Bosh, out next week.
Walker said that he views his music as "searching for the sounds I see on paper" and described it as "dressing songs". He admitted he had experienced great difficulty with record companies regarding his musical direction. He added, "I have to make a radical change now and won't go so lyrical. Lyrics always dictate what I should do".
