Partly inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre’s short story of the same name, ‘The Childhood Of A Leader’ is a tense psychological drama tracing the formative years of a young boy and set against the backdrop of the 1919 Paris Peace Conference that led to the establishment of the Treaty of Versailles.
Scott Walker continues to work with long-term collaborators Peter Walsh (co-producer) and Mark Warman (musical director), with the latter conducting an orchestra comprised of 46 string players and 16 brass for the studio recording.
Also available on limited edition transparent vinyl LP.
