Alice In Chains singer William DuVall has lent his vocals to a track by The Lord, the new project from Sunn O))) / Goatsnake guitarist Greg Anderson.

The song, We Who Walk In Light, is available on Bandcamp now, part of a series of new compositions Greg is doing with various artists, with proceeds going to MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer’s Jail Guitar Doors charity, which helps to provide musical programs for prison inmates.

Elaborating on his input to the song, William said it was a spontaneous thing that came to him when Greg sent him the music over.

"We Who Walk In Light just came to me. I simply reacted to the music Greg sent, tracked and arranged all my parts at home alone,” he says. “I wrote it as I was singing it, all at once, no second guessing.

“Thankfully, my wife was out of town at the time as she might have been a bit unsettled by some of the sounds emanating from the basement. It's basically a heavy metal Buddhist monk choir with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan flying in for a cameo. I'm sure it's channeling some of the tension of current times.

"I was happy to be asked by The Lord to collaborate and I'm glad to donate the proceeds to my friend Brother Wayne Kramer's organization, Jail Guitar Doors."
