As they prepare to release their long-awaited second album as a duo, we asked musicians Will Oldham and Matt Sweeney to model some of our wares.
"There are many ways in which this demon virus has actually bolstered and fostered good works. As travel and in-person hangs have been frowned-upon, we've explored the strengths of distance."
Will Oldham, often known as Bonnie “Prince” Billy, is talking to us about the unexpected yet long-awaited follow up to 2005's “Superwolf”. Modestly received upon its initial release, it is one of those perfect slow-burn albums that has crystallised over time and under the radar, blooming into a bona fide cult classic in the process. “Superwolves” (released by Domino / Drag City 30th April) will once again see him teaming up with musical partner Matt Sweeney, creating another masterpiece steeped in the intimate and the infinite. Sweeney's fingerpicking and Oldham's voice delivering a collection of songs straddling transatlantic folk music and cosmic Americana.
