We here at ENS are big fans of Will Oldhaam and his Bonnie Prince Billy moniker, weve been over that in the not so distant past actually. Well, Mr. Oldham has new material on the horizon, you can already pick up the 3 track EP/Single Cursed Sleep in stores as of today. This EP precedes the album “Then the letting go” recorded in Iceland last winter with BjÃ¶rk producer Valgeir Sigurdsson, is due out September 18 on Domino in the UK, and in the U.S. the following day courtesy of Drag City.
This track, “No Bad News” is a good representation of the album too. It has the slow dark feel that we are already accostomed to with BPB but the addition of female backing vocals are throughout the album. Enjoy this preview.
