Seattle musician writes song for ‘The Walking Dead’

This is some fitting news on Halloween. Seattle folk musician Damien Jurado is teaming up with AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”

Wait, what?!

Today Damien Jurado released a brand new original song written for the TV show. The song is called “I Will Still Be Dead” and is set be released as part of a bonus disk to be sold with “The Walking Dead” season three on Blu Ray.

With this news, I can’t help but think that everything is heading in the right direction for Jurado. He was featured on the song “Almost Home” and Moby’s new album “Innocents” that was released on Oct. 1 and also went on a mini tour with Moby that included a performance on Conan. Jurado also announced the release of his upcoming album “Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Sun” which will be out in January and his album release show will be on Jan. 17 at the Neptune Theatre in Seattle.

There will be more info about the new album coming soon and hopefully a single. For now enjoy the “Walker” inspired song.
