First Listen: Dead Man’s Bones, ‘My Body’s A Zombie For You’


Dead Man’s Bones, the band made up of actor Ryan Gosling and his buddy Zach Shields, have announced that their self titled debut album will be released on October 6 on Anti- records and today we get our first listen at a song off the album. Firstly, here is the album artwork for the new album along with the disc’s tracklist:

The debut album from actor Ryan Gosling’s Dead Man’s Bones is set to be released on October 6. Gosling collaborated with fellow thespian Zach Shields on the project, and the pair recorded the self-titled album with Silverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir in Los Angeles, reports Pitchfork. The band describe their musical inspiration as “Disney haunted mansion, doo wop and 60s girl groups”.

The tracklisting is:

‘Dead Hearts’
‘In the Room Where You Sleep’
‘Buried in Water’
‘My Body’s a Zombie for You’
‘Pa Pa Power’
‘Young & Tragic’
‘Paper Ships’
‘Lose Your Soul’
‘Werewolf Heart’
‘Dead Man’s Bones’
‘Flowers Grow Out of My Grave’

As you may recall, late last year Dead Man’s Bones released their first music video for the song In the Room Where You Sleep which had a creepy look and sound to it. After the jump, you can listen in FULL to the song My Body’s a Zombie for You and get another taste of Dead Man’s Bones

What a great sound. I wouldn’t necessarily call it goth tho it does have a goth feel to it. I guess it could fall under the rock label but they deffo have a sound of their own. The band has a very unique sound, one that I like very much. I’ve heard from a few Pink readers who have seen Dead Man’s Bones in concert that the band really delivers when they perform live … I cannot wait to see them for myself. I am really looking forward to the release of this debut album. If this track is any indication, I think I’m gonna really love the whole album. So … what do y’all think?

    This song is gorgeous.

    I saw the first video they did which was stunning but this track blows me away. His voice is perfect for the sound and musical textures they are painting with.
