Philadelphia Americana ensemble Mason Porter debut a new single based on the Edgar Allen Poe short story “The Tell-Tale Heart”. The song was released today in celebration of Poe’s birthday. In their re-telling of this classic tale the band combines a dark, aggressive rhythm section with dramatic layers of strings to great effect and intensity. The track was produced by Brian McTear (Sharon Van Etten, The War On Drugs) at Miner Street Recordings in Philadelphia. Digital download and stream is available at the bands website www.masonporter.com
