Listen: Tom Waits Teams Up With Hank Williams III

Videos by American Songwriter

Ghost To A Ghost is one of four new Hank Williams III albums out, representing the country scion’s diverse musical interests. Tom Waits drops by to lend his unmistakable vocals on “Fadin’ Moon” and the album’s title track.

In an interview with Hails and Horns, Williams says: “I’ve always been a fan of Tom. He’s one of the guys that’s always marched to his own drum and done it his own way. He’s just different, and it was an honor. We talked for a long time before we even got close to doing songs together. So, you know, it’s just one of those things. He felt a lot more natural on the Cajun stuff. He’s always been a fan of the accordion, so that’s the one he liked.”

Listen to the infectious, Cajun-flavored “Fadin’ Moon” below, and try not to dance.
