MP3: The Twilight Singers – “Blackbird and the Fox (feat. Ani DiFranco)”

The Twilight Singers
Weird that, once upon a time, people called The Twilight Singers the “side project” of Afghan Whigs’ frontman, Greg Dulli. Now his primary (and some would say superior) artistic outlet, the collective are approaching their sixth full-length, ‘Dynamite Steps’, in February. And we couldn’t be any more intrigued.

The first track to emerge, “Blackbird and the Fox”, has all the rogue lyricism and darkened Americana leanings that have made the project so compelling for the last decade. But the injection of cult singer-songwriter, Ani DiFranco, into the vocal mix gives the track a whole new aura of foreboding unease. This tune will creep up on you; cloaked in smoke, out of the darkness.
