What, you were expecting a song called “The Gravedigger’s Song” by Mark Lanegan to be something other than a gravel-voiced torch song? Here’s the first single from Blues Funeral, the new album from Mark Lanegan Band, the first solo album from Lanegan since 2004. The track is more new-wavey than you’d expect from Lanegan’s solo work, but given his work with Greg Dulli in Gutter Twins, this makes sense. Listen below.
Dulli, Josh Homme and others are slated to appear on Blues Funeral, which is due out on Feb. 6 via 4AD.
