One-off track written for the opening of a legal weed dispensary in California
Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy has released a surprise new single called “Blueberry Jam”.
The song was apparently inspired by some THC-laced chocolate covered blueberries given to Will Oldham and his wife to help them recover from the shock of a false ballistic missile alert, issued when they were living on the rim of the active volcano Kilauea, in Hawaii. It features regular Will Oldham collaborators Matt Sweeney and Peter Townsend.

“Blueberry Jam” was completed to mark the opening of Hi Fidelity, a legal weed boutique in Berkeley, California, an offshoot of the famous Amoeba Music.
