Bonnie “Prince” Billy- Beware Album Art

It is only a matter of time now before BPB’s new album comes out (March 17), but to hold you over, here is the album art.

BS on Hearing a Track from Beware:

The tune is called “You Can’t Hurt Me Now.”

A couple quick thoughts on the song:

1. First reference to his belly since Superwolf with Matt Sweeney.

2. Don’t expect the same sound on the album, as the intro suggests, there’s a big country/folky sound to the record. Perhaps more …Sings Palace Music than Master and Everyone.

3. I’m really getting into the subtle affectation that’s taking over Oldham’s lyrical delivery. Sometimes he sounds almost brutally detached, but the way he delivers things on this live version is almost warmly callous.

BS on BPB’s Bloomington Show on March 12th:

Oldham will be playing at the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre in Bloomington, Indiana on March 12, 2009.  This show is the first of his tour and only five days prior to the release of his new album, Beware, so I am hoping that he will give a preview.  I’m also pretty excited about the venue.  The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is a recently renovated vaudeville and movie house that was built in 1922.  If the balcony is open, it holds a little over 600 people.  We just bought our tickets, so at least two are gone.  Hope to see you there!

Tickets are a reasonable $15 in advance (w/ $1.50 convenience charge), or $20 bucks at the door. You can buy your tickets online HERE.

  2. Thropplenoggin and I are perspiring with fervid dreams regarding this imminent aural ejaculation from the facially-foliaged plank-strummer extraordinaire. And you can quote us on that. All and any tidings related to its emergence into the world are received most gladly.
