Will Oldham Strikes Again...

...another Bonnie "Prince" Billy album; Beware, due out March 17th from Drag City Records. Here's a brand new song (You Can't Hurt Me Now), live and in-studio with WNYC's Soundcheck program. Will always gives a great interview- so understated and eloquent, for such a giant talent he's really a pretty accessible and down-to-earth guy. He waxes poetic on his alter-ego, his acting career and the flattery of having his music covered by the likes of Johnny Cash as well as traditional Scottish folk singers. He also sticks around to give a fantastic rendition of The Brute Choir from 1995's Viva Last Blues under his old moniker Palace Music.
