Zeal & Ardor Return With New Single
Manuel Gagneux, aka Zeal & Ardor, is keeping up his trend of releasing great music with his latest single, 'Gravedigger's Chant'. Taken from his forthcoming second album, Stranger Fruit, the track takes listeners on someone's final journey.
Manuel intones, "The gravedigger's chant is the song sung by the people who lay your body to rest. These people don't care where you were, but they know what you did and who loved you. All they know is what lies before them. So they sing this song, since you can no longer breathe a note."
He continues "Our intent is both to familiarize as well as alienate. The video for Gravedigger's Chant subverts roles: People find themselves in situations untypical for their ilk, tools become weapons, weapons turn into tools, and fingers meant for sensing make themselves felt."
