Need a little something to set a spooky mood for this weekend? We've got something that'll hit the spot.
Celebrity DJ Space Cowboy teamed up with labelmate Natalia Kills to put a fresh twist on Edgar Allan Poe's creepy classic narrative, The Raven. And they made exclusive for us and stuff. Hauntingly awesome, no?
A little about the artists involved here: Space Cowboy has worked with Lady Gaga ("Starstruck" on The Fame), Cinema Bizarre, Feist and is much-loved by Idol runner-up Adam Lambert. Yeah, Nick Dresti (real name) is hot sh*t. Just by dropping those names, you can imagine the kind of glitzy mesmerizing glam-rock he rolls out. Did you hear the song he sneaked in at the end of The Raven? You can hear some more of his creations here.
The narrator, Natalia Kills, is a Cherrytree Records artist as well. For some more eerie tunes, check out her video for “Zombie.” It's the first song she recorded for her forthcoming debut album, expected in early 2010.
And Edgar Allan Poe... well, I don't really need to school you on that, do I? If you wish to read along or enact your own dramatic performance of the poem, here's a transcript.
Oh, and I did say I had a gift, didn't I?
