David E. Williams has long been a favourite of ours here at Heathen Harvest, with his delightfully demented experimental pop sensibilities and his unpredictable range of collaborators (from Rozz Williams of Christian Death to Deathpile). He’s been an active and influential artist for close to three decades, and 2017 sees the release of his latest opus Hospice Chorale.
Although conceived as a return to his early days of lyrical nihilism and musical minimalism, Hospice Chorale serves more as an old fashioned revue of his strengths and idiosyncrasies, encompassing power electronics, to a sort of gallows cabaret, with a healthy dose of the songs of innocence and experience that will warm the hearts of longtime fans. Guest performers on the record include: Bain Wolfkind, Jerome Deppe, Tony Cesa (Destroying Angel, Signls), Albo Sudekum (Apibus), David Talento (Music for Isolation Tanks) and Jane Elizabeth (Tesco USA). (It even has a ghostly appearance by crooner Bing Crosby.)
Today, we have for you the premiere of “Someday I Will Live My Life as a Horse”, which showcases Williams at his melodic best. The video was created by Ohio visual artist Jim Ether, who previously collaborated with David on the cover and trailer video for the 2013 release Trust No Scaffold Built of this Bone.
