ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with eclectic, worldly singer/songwriter Pheroze to stream "Today I Belong to the Dead" from his new release Ennui, out April 23.
"'Today I Belong to the Dead' is the first song I wrote for Ennui," Pheroze told us. "I just sat down with an acoustic guitar one evening and it poured out of me like a despondent baby. It really kicked off the central theme behind all the songs in Ennui, which I could really have called Five Songs About Depression' if I felt like cursing the album with a terribly long name. 'Today I Belong to the Dead' is about surrendering to to those times when you just inexplicably feel down. It's about embracing depression as an old familiar friend; fighting it off by recognizing its place in your life and letting it soak in, beat you up, and move on."
In addition to listening to the song in full, check out the song's 45-second teaser trailer for the video, too. It features giant plush animals walking down a city street. Oh, stop thinking too hard about it and watch the big white bunny. He is the type to haunt our dreams. We love how the silliness of the video is juxtaposed against the seriousness of the song.
