A lot of things I work on often deal with my mother’s death and the affect it had on my life and this song goes into that as well.

Former Ghosts was Freddy Ruppert in collaboration with Nika Roza Danilova (Zola Jesus), Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu) and Yasmine Kittles (Tearist). Two full-length albums, a handful of tours, and six years since the project’s inception, Freddy has decided to put an end to the band with two final songs – “Last Hour’s Bow” and “Past Selves”. Presented in the form of a 7″ Split/ Digital EP with Funeral Advantage – the lo-fi dream-pop project of Tyler Kershaw, a close friend of Ruppert’s – these two songs mark an end to the dark and oftentimes emotionally draining, experimental synth-pop Former Ghosts had become known for.
