On April 5, a new book titled Will Oldham on Bonnie 'Prince' Billy will be published by Faber & Faber. The 400-page book collects a series of conversations between Oldham and avant garde musician and writer Alan Licht, and is available only in the UK in a run of 300.
According to the publisher's website, the interviews "probe [Oldham's] highly individualistic approach to music making and the music industry, one that cherishes notions of intimacy, community, mystery, and spontaneity." It's available in both paperback and hardbackeditions.
Domino will release a box set featuring the book along with a 2x10" EP "of classic Palace/Bonny music by the band who played on Wolfroy Goes to Town," recorded by Steve Albini.
On February 16, Black Tent Press will issue a book of paintings titled Afternoon by Ashley Macomber, accompanied by a 10" single from Bonnie "Prince" Billy, including the songs "I Am a Floozy" and "Remember the Terror Time".
And-- inhale-- to close out the month, February 28 will see the release of a new Drag Citysingle, "Time to Be Clear", from 2011's Wolfroy Goes to Town. The 7" vinyl version includes only the non-album B-sides, "Whipped" and "Out-Of-Mind".
UPDATE: Will Oldham has a new EPBonnie & Mariee, out via the Spiritual Pajamas label on March 6. It is a collaboration with Mariee Sioux and was released digitally on February 13.
