The first of the songs from my upcoming Raised by Bats album to be finished is here! It's an homage to my dear friend, the talented actor, Mr. Doug Jones. He played Pan in Pan's Labyrinth, Abe Sapian in Hellboy. More often than not, he plays monsters. I alway say he's our generation's Lon Chaney.
Playing with me on this song is the incredible Brian Viglione (The Dresden Dolls/The Violent Femmes) on drums, Ray Toro (My Chemical Romance) on guitar, Emilio Zef China (Peter Murphy's band/Psychic TV) on bass and the excruciatingly beautiful Julia Marcell singing with me. Julia sang a duet (This Sea) with me on my album To the Bottom of the Sea back in 2008. She has such an amazing voice. It's no wonder I asked her to play the angel in this conversation between Doug Jones, heaven and hell.
In any case, this is not exactly the "single" from the album but since it's the first to be finished and since I'm so excited to have had such amazing people play on it, I'm uploading this rough mix of the song... which you can DOWNLOAD for free. ; )
Recorded at Planet Grey Studio by George Grant.
I hope you all enjoy it!
