Bonnie "Prince" Billy


(Drag City; US: 17 Mar 2009; UK: Available as import)

Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s forthcoming album Beware is out on March 17th (the 16th in the UK) and here’s a music video for one of its songs, “I Am Goodbye”. The track is very country with it’s fiddle and banjo and it’s also very good. The video is simple but effective with Oldham strolling the city streets, singing.
