Bonnie Prince Billy Singer's Grave A Sea of Tongues on LP
Singer’s Grave a Sea of Tongues is the eleventh new full-length album from the mind, soul and voice of the man that is Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. His first solo record on Drag City in nearly three years, it is a rich and roiling time of life that is captured in a myriad of moments throughout all the songs here.
Throughout Singer’s Grave a Sea of Tongues, mythos is in the wind, trysting with truth and the joys of song, of singing and playing in open space; harmonies and acoustic instruments spread in bright stereo sound, accosting in the air between the speakers and going deep, without hesitation into our waiting and needing minds and souls. Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy sings for who he was, is and will be, and for all of us in time.
Singer’s Grave a Sea Of Tongues was recorded in Nashville by Mark Nevers and played by Bonny, with Emmett Kelley, Ben Martin and Paul Oldham. Additional instrumental contributions were made by Richard Bailey, Billy Contreras, Tony Crow, Jedd Hughes, Paul Niehaus and Chris Scruggs; additional voices provided by Caroline Peyton and Alfreda McCrary-Lee, Regina McCrary and Ann McCrary singing together.
