Update: Bonnie "Prince" Billy Confirms New Album
Published Feb 23, 2010Last week, we showed you the rather salacious way in which Bonnie "Prince" Billy decided to announce what we believed was his forthcoming album. Well, now there is confirmation that the ever-bearded one is indeed returning with a new full-length.
The Wonder Show of the World will be released, as indicated previously, on March 23 courtesy of Drag City. The record, which is credited to the band Bonnie "Prince" Billy & the Cairo Gang, will feature ten songs, none of which have been announced.
The album is available here at the Drag Store for pre-order as both a CD and LP.
The band have released an album preview song that, oddly, will not appear on the record. You can stream the song, titled "Play, Guitar, Play" on the main page of the Drag City website, in the upper right-hand corner.
