When one hears the words "southern gothic supernatural musical"--it's to be forgiven if the mind is blown somewhat, but there is a project out there that fits that description. And, it gets even better when one hears who spearheaded the idea!

Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a work 13 years in the making, came about originally via a conversation between literary horror mastermind Stephen King and classic rocker John Mellencamp. The story, a complex tale centered around the death of two brothers, spans several decades and has won rave reviews for its rich combination of storytelling and songs.
The musical, as expected, has a stellar soundtrack as well, produced by T Bone Burnett featuring contributions from Elvis Costello, Neko Case, Sheryl Crow, Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson, and more. It won't be available until June 4, but we at Yahoo! Music have an exclusive first listen to one of the songs. Enjoy "Truth" by John Mellencamp, and don't forget to tell us what you think!
