“Time Is the Killer” is a beautiful and haunting track from actress Rain Pheonix, younger sister of the late River Phoenix. The single appears on a new release called Time Gone. It’s Rain Phoenix’s first solo release and features vocals by Michael Stipe (REM).
The release also features previously unreleased tracks by River Phoenix’s band Aleka’s Attic: “Where I’d Gone” and “Scales & Fishnails.”
In a press release, Rain Phoenix said:
It’s so hard to believe [River Phoenix]’s been gone for 25 years. It really made me think about the construct of time, how we create it to make sense of things, and how especially with grief, it never really snaps to a grid. That said, a quarter of a century has a definite weight to it and I felt compelled and guided to share River the musician, with the world.
