Zeal & Ardor Return With 'Gravedigger's Chant'
3rd April 2018
Creative firebrand Manuel Gagneux has returned with a brand new Zeal & Ardor single. ‘Gravedigger's Chant’ was released on March 30th and serves as an omen of what's to come from his forthcoming second Zeal & Ardor album, Stranger Fruit, which will be available in June.
With its haunting refrain of "bring the dead body down", ‘Gravedigger's Chant’ 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."
