New Bonnie Prince Billy Album Sneaks Out!

With a lack of fuss remarkable even by his standards, [b]Will Oldham[/b] appears to have released a new [b]Bonnie "Prince" Billy[/b] album this week.

"Ask Forgiveness" is an eight-track covers album, recorded in Philadelphia with [b]Greg Weeks[/b] and [b]Meg Baird[/b] from one of our favourite psych-folk groups, [b]Espers[/b].

The most famous song tackled by Oldham is probably [b]Bjork[/b]'s "I've Seen It All", which originally appeared on the "Dancer In The Dark" soundtrack. He also gets busy with tunes by [b]Phil Ochs[/b], [b]Merle Haggard[/b], [b]Mickey Newbury[/b], [b]Danzig[/b] and - yes! - [b]R Kelly[/b]!

Here's the full tracklisting:

[b]I Came To Hear The Music
I've Seen It All
Am I Demon?
My Life
I'm Loving The Street
The Way I Am
Cycles
The World's Greatest[/b]
