Neko Case lends haunting voice to Ghost Brothers of Darkland County OST

After putting the finishing touches on their long-awaited southern gothic, supernatural musical Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, co-conspirators Stephen King, John Mellencamp and T Bone Burnett have released the musical's soundtrack. Although Mellancamp is credited with composing the music and lyrics – certainly reasonable cause for concern – It's a shockingly solid collection of non-throwawys concerning fraternal love, lust, jealousy and revenge enhanced by the superb interpretive skills of Neko Case, Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson, Rosanne Cash, Dave & Phil Alvin, Ryan Bingham, Sheryl Crow and others. Check it out below.
 Ghost Brothers of Darkland County will be available in a variety of formats:
    • The 3-disc (2CD/1DVD) Hardcover Edition contains the musical’s songs (with and without dialog excerpts), specially printed libretto, liner notes written by noted journalist Alan Light and the Making of Ghost Brothers mini-documentary DVD, featuring in-depth interviews with King, Mellencamp and Burnett along with the digital libretto and other bonus material.
    • The 2-disc (1CD/1DVD) Deluxe Edition features the musical’s songs with dialog excerpts and the digital libretto, along with bonus video including the Making of Ghost Brothers mini documentary and music only digital download card.
    • The (enhanced CD) Standard Edition features the musical’s songs, dialog excerpts, digital libretto and music only digital download card.
