Ian McCulloch's 'Holy Ghosts' Pairs Orchestral Bunnymen Remakes with New Solo LP

Ian McCulloch, best known as the frontman for Echo and the Bunnymen, has announced the release of a new double album Holy Ghosts due April 22 via Edsel. The first disc of the project is a live, orchestra-backed collection produced by Youth featuring live recordings from his Union Chapel performance in 2012 including Bunnymen classics "Lips Like Sugar", "Rescue", "Nothing Lasts Forever", and "The Killing Moon". The second disc is McCulloch's fourth studio album -- Pro Patria Mori. See tracklisting below.  “Even since last year, I feel so different,” says McCulloch, “I’ve been straightening myself out a lot, not relying on things I did daily, and distilling and purifying the good things in me, not just drowning them in…shite!"
