Trending Now

With a lack of fuss remarkable even by his standards, Will Oldham appears to have released a new Bonnie “Prince” Billy album this week.

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

The most famous song tackled by Oldham is probably Bjork‘s “I’ve Seen It All”, which originally appeared on the “Dancer In The Dark” soundtrack. He also gets busy with tunes by Phil Ochs, Merle Haggard, Mickey Newbury, Danzig and – yes! – R Kelly!

Here’s the full tracklisting:

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
The World’s Greatest
