According to an Oct. 14 post from Buddy Hollywood, singer-songwriter Mary Fahl, former lead singer of the October Project, just released “Exiles (The Wolves of Midwinter)” which is featured as the theme song in Anne Rice’s new novel “The Wolves of Midwinter”.
“Exiles (The Wolves of Midwinter)” is available at Amazon, iTunes and other online retail outlets today, Oct. 15.
With the help of standout composer and producer John Lissauer, who has worked with heavyweights such as Leonard Cohen and Bette Midler, “Exiles (The Wolves of Midwinter)” was born.
To coincide with Rice’s new book launch, this hauntingly beautiful track is available on iTunes, Amazon and other online retail outlets on Oct. 15.
“I was hearing that song in my head, and Mary Fahl singing it, as I wrote the scene," Rice said. “I am so honored and thrilled that Mary was inspired to write “Exiles” as a result. It’s haunting and beautiful and exactly conveys the mood of the novel.”
Fahl is perhaps known best for her work as singer and co-founder of October Project, an adult-alternative act that rose to fame in the 1990s.
As a solo artist, Fahl's inspirations include classical, folk, medieval and world music.
Sharing a mutual love for music, longtime fan Anne Rice mentions both Fahl and an October Project song, “Take Me as I Am,” in her new novel, “The Wolves of Midwinter.”
Fahl, who hails from Rockland County, New York, currently lives in eastern Pennsylvania with her husband marine biologist and deep-sea explorer Dr. Richard Lutz.
