The forthcoming release on Dependent Records by Jean-Marc Lederman Experience will be the album “13 Ghost Stories”. For the occasion Jean-Marc Lederman asked 20 singers and novelists to answer a simple question: “You come back to Earth, as a ghost, for 24 hours. What do you do ?” on music he created for them.
Jean-Marc: “They all replied with lyrics and vocals and the result was emotionally overwhelming at times. Sometimes they come back for revenge, sometimes for seeing their loved one a last time, sometimes they just float, sometimes they look to change something they did wrong…”
This album, out on March 1, will be released as a single CD edition with 17 tracks and a 300 limited edition with 2CD holding 23 tracks and a 36 page hardcover book. You can order the album right here.
