Last January Will Oldham covered Hank Williams’ “Leave Me Alone With These Blues” in a session for the website Fogged Clarity. Today, almost exactly a year later, Oldham is back with another Fogged Clarity session, this time performing “Hunter’s Lullaby” from Leonard Cohen’s 1984 album Various Positions. It’s delivered in that weathered yet dignified quaver that could only be Bonnie “Prince” Billy. Listen below.
Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s new album of Peel Sessions, Pond Scum, is out 1/22 on Drag City.
