Slideling is the third solo album by British singer-songwriter Ian McCulloch and was released in 2003. The album features guest appearances by Coldplay singer Chris Martin, who provides backing vocals and piano on "Sliding" as well as piano on "Arthur"; Coldplay lead guitarist Jonny Buckland, who plays guitar on "Sliding" and "Arthur"; and actor John Simm, who plays guitar on "Sliding". Love in Veins" – 3:25. Playgrounds and City Parks" – 3:17.
In between the 1988 demise and resurrection of Echo & the Bunnymen in 1997, frontman Ian McCulloch made an earnest attempt at a solo career. Candleland was a somber effort rooted in classic Bunnymen design, whereas Mysterio went for an over-styled synth-driven sound. When it came time to get back to his own work, McCulloch didn't go for a grandiose production. He turned 40, released two guitar-oriented Bunnymen albums by the time the new millennium was underway, and obviously felt good about where he stood as an artist.
Ian McCulloch: Slideling. Despite the absence of guitarist Will Sergeant and the presence of Coldplay's Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland, Ian McCulloch's third solo album doesn't differ enormously from his recent output with Echo and the Bunnymen. However, get past the big choruses and Slideling contains some of the most personal, confessional songs of his career. These are anthems born of lonely nights in hotel rooms, crises in confidence and pleas for emotional rescue; in them, the vulnerable character beneath the notorious Mac bravado is exposed.
