The late Kurt Cobain lends vocals to "Down in the Dark," and for the folk classic "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" Cobain contributes guitar and vocals and Krist Novoselic plays bass. Nirvana would later also cover "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" on their Unplugged album. The album was produced by Jack Endino, Lanegan, and Johnson. With extra tracks "I Love You Little Girl." Whiskey for the Holy Ghost is the second solo album from Lanegan, and it was released January 18th, 1994. It builds upon the roots-music foundation Lanegan established with his debut The Winding Sheet. Released during the grunge explosion of the early 1990s, Whiskey for the Holy Ghost showcases Lanegan's growing maturity as a songwriter and vocalist. Lyrically, Lanegan continues to delve into the darker side of the human experience on songs like "Borracho" and the biblical "Pendulum." "House a Home" was released as a single with an accompanying video. Dan Peters of Mudhoney guests on the album, playing drums on the songs "Borracho" and "House a Home."
