A few months ago, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy started a new project alongside Trembling Bells, of which we will soon see the first results. On 9th April, Honest Jon’s will release their album, “ The Marble Downs”. At some point during the coming weeks, there will also be an EP, entitled “ Dutchess”, featuring four songs from the same recording sessions, including the Scott Walker cover that gives the record its title. It also features four more songs, with a cappella versions of Muldoon’s Picnic, on which Oldham doesn't participate.
In other news, Domino will put out “Will Oldham On Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy” on 5th May, a book collecting the conversations between Oldham and his musical collaborator Alan Licht. The talks focus on the highly individual nature of his song-writing process, which feeds off intimacy, community, mystery and spontaneity.
