Published Mar 21, 2013Horror novelist Stephen King recently teamed up with heartland rocker John Mellencamp and folk producer T-Bone Burnett for the Southern gothic musical Ghost Brothers of Darkland County. The musical's soundtrack had been slated for an in-store release this month, but it's now been pushed back to June 19 via Hear Music/Concord Music Group. In the meantime, interested parties can stream a song sung by Neko Case.
"That's Who I Am" is a pattering, country-leaning ditty that's anchoring by a steadily strutting drum beat and Case's powerful vocals, as she confesses that she's "one thousand percent illusion."
Other contributors to Ghost Brothers of Darkland County include Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson, Rosanne Cash and Taj Mahal. Read about the musical here.
