“Jesus was an only child like me,” sings Ken Stringfellow on “Jesus Was An Only Child,” the gauzy title track from Danzig In The Moonlight. Danzig is the fourth solo album from the founding member of The Posies, who’s also logged time as a member of Big Star and R.E.M.
The first single, “Doesn’t It Remind You of Something,” features guest vocals from Charity Rose Thielen of The Head and the Heart.
“This album reflects the growth in knowledge and experiences–musical, social, conceptual–that has taken place in the eight years since my last album, 2004’s Soft Commands,” says Stringfellow. “Recorded in Brussels, Amsterdam, Italy, L.A., Seattle, Mumbai and more, the album is meant explicitly to be diverse and challenging. Easy listening it’s not; but uncompromising, soothing, heroic, beautiful, and deep it intends to be. Enjoy.”
