Chelsea Wolfe Releases New Wonder Woman Inspired Single ‘Diana’
Chelsea Wolfe has shared a haunting new song “Diana” taken from DC Comics’ upcoming Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack.
Co-produced by Wolfe’s collaborator Ben Chisholm, as well as film score composer and the soundtrack’s executive producer Tyler Bates, Wolfe wrote the track about Wonder Woman’s Diana, a character the singer feels close to due to her voicing the superhero for DC Comics Sonic Metalverse episodes.
“It has been such an honor and delight to be involved in this whole project, from contributing a song to the soundtrack, to voicing Wonder Woman for the DC Comics Sonic Metalverse episodes,” Wolfe says.
“I really love the story and artwork of this Dark Nights: Death Metal series, and felt really drawn to Diana’s part in the story – her strength and perspective. There’s this moment in the first comic book issue where she meets with Wally West and he’s so drained from his travels and all he’s had to do.”
She continues: “I picked up on this intimate energy between them that felt almost romantic, but more just like two old friends who have an understanding between them – a moment of comfort and respite amongst all the fighting and chaos. I ended up writing this song about that encounter.
“Working with Tyler Bates on Diana was a great experience. He’s obviously so killer at creating music that feels like the soundtrack to your own movie, so between him and my co-producer Ben Chisholm there was this elevated sonic landscape surrounding the song that just brought it to a different level.”
Listen to the song below.
