If there is one music person who can attach his name, or one of his many monikers, to something other than albums and have us give it a thumbs up, we’re going to say it’s Will Oldham.
First there was coffee, and as Pitchfork reports, now there’s a book out April 5th titled Will Oldham on Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, published by Faber & Faber. The 400-page book collects a series of conversations between Oldham and avant garde musician and writer Alan Licht, and will be available only in the UK in a run of 300.
Maybe he was inspired after being the voice for the audio version of Rudy Wurlitzer’s Slow Fade?
[Update: the book will be released in the US as well; details here.]
