Ashes to Ashes (3:36)

Cover of Album of the Year

From Album of the Year and 28 other releases

“Ashes to Ashes” is the seventh track on Faith No More’s sixth and final studio album Album of the Year. It was the album’s first single and was released on May 19, 1997.

When asked about the song, Billy Gould replied: “The bulk of that song was written the first week. We arranged it here, and then we sent Patton a tape. He was in Italy, but he came up with the lyrics and the singing right away. It was one of those songs that just clicked — one of those songs that we do most naturally. That’s our sound.
