Ghosts Of Darkland County

It’s incredibly difficult to figure out how stuff like this even happens, but the unlikely trio of Stephen King, John Mellencamp, and T-Bone Burnett have mobbed up to make a musical called Ghost Brothers Of Darkland County. The musical’s soundtrack has an all-star list of contributors that includes Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson, and Roseanne Cash. And Neko Case’s song for the soundtrack, a little old-school country number called “That’s Who I Am,” has just made its way to Soundcloud. Listen below.

  1. Oh Neko, how I’ve missed that beautiful voice. If she ever did a full album with T-Bone Burnett I think I’d be in heaven.

  2. trying to think a name for their band,, I’m liking “T-King Melon-case” . i look forward to this!

  3. Nice little song. Can I get an album announcement now? Please?

  4. Lovely…damn. When can we get that new album?? There was a piece on NPR an entire year ago about her forthcoming album…it’s been too long!!
