Raveonettes 2016

The Raveonettes return with surprise release ‘Ghost’ on the 16th March; watch the video here…

The Raveonettes are back with a song originally written for their critically acclaimed anti-album ‘2016 Atomized’.

The unconventional Danish duo are notorious for dropping tracks on their fans when they least expect it. In keeping with this tradition, their new track ‘Ghost’ has been unleashed today.

The track was written for the 2016 Atomized sessions but not completed in time to adhere to the strict dogma rules around the album – all songs must be written, recorded and released in the same month.

The band have subsequently chosen to re-visit and release this superb song as a surprise belated bonus track for their dedicated fanbase.

‘Ghost’ is a haunting precursor to Sune Rose Wagner’s upcoming solo projects, which are scheduled for release in April. He’s been concentrating on his solo career with great success in the areas of both TV and film sync, including Game of Thrones, Altered Carbon, Still Alice, Molly’s Game, and American Honey; he also wrote the score for the 2017 Oscar-nominated film (Best Foreign Language Film) ‘A War’, a Danish language war drama written and directed by Tobias Lindholm, and starring Pilou Asbæk, and Søren Malling. It tells the story of a Danish military company in Afghanistan that is fighting the Taliban while trying to protect civilians, and how the commander is accused of having committed a war crime.

Sune’s version of White Zombie’s “More Human Than Human”, for Netflix’s Altered Carbon soundtrack may also provide hints as to where The Raveonettes frontman is heading musically.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
