I Have Made A Place: Neues Album von Bonnie Prince Billy erscheint im November

In den acht Jahren seit “Wolfroy Goes To Town” hat sich Bonnie “Prince” Billy” unberechenbar gegeben, mit zahlreichen Leuten kollaboriert, eine Reihe an Coveralben herausgebracht, ferner eine Best-of-Compilation mit Buch und mit einem selbstbetitelten Will Oldham-Album die Brücke in die ganz alten Tage geschlagen. Mit “I Have Made a Place” erscheint am 15. November nun seit langem wieder ein Longplayer mit eigenen neuen Songs. Die Platte erscheint in Europa bei Domino Records.

“In recent years, the whole world of recorded music, in the way that such music is conceived, perceived, recorded, released and distributed, has been atomized. I tried holding my breath, waiting for the storm to pass, but this storm is here to stay and its devastation is our new landscape. What else is a person to do except what he knows and feels, which for me is making records built out of songs intended for the intimate listening experiences of wonderful strangers who share something spiritually and musically? I started working on these songs thinking that there was no way I was going to finish them and record and release them. This was a constructive frame-of-mind that protected the songs until this frightening moment when we let go of them and give them to you.”
