BONNIE 'PRINCE' BILLY, Man on the Wire

It was only a few months ago that Will Oldham released his last full length album Lie Down in the Light, but already it seems that there is more interest and dare I say hype for his forthcoming release Beware. He's doing press even, which is fairly unusual for such a private chap, but I'm not complaining, infact I'm positively giddy with excitement over new photo's and the chance to see this legend play in a couple of months. The album beware is released as usual on Domino and will be available on Monday 16th March and is already receiving high praise from the like of The Guardian and Independent. You can pre-order it now through Domino Mart.

If you like the above and below photos you can see more of them in the new issue of The Wire magazine or by clicking here. The photo's were taken by Eva Vermandel, you some of you may know from being involved in the Sigur Ros documentary last year. She also produced the book that accompanied Sigur Ros' last album Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust.

Here are the dates you can catch Will Oldham at in the next few months. The London date has sold out but he's worth traveling for.

20/04 - Royal Festival Hall, London, UK
22/04 - AB Bruxelles, Bruxelles, Belgium
23/04 - Paradiso, Amsterdam, Netherlands
24/04 - Cigale, Paris, France
