Bonnie 'Prince' Billy is one of the living songwriters whose work stands confidently among the great song composers, from Franz Schubert to Townes Van Zandt. The songs of Will Oldham, born in Kentucky in 1970, who has been calling himself Bonnie 'Prince' Billy since the late 1990s, deal with love, horror, and the nuances of existence. They have been covered by Johnny Cash (»I See A Darkness«) and Marianne Faithfull, showcasing folk music in all its dazzling variety. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, who also works as an actor in cinema and TV, and whose live performances are as legendary as they are mythical experiences, is finally back on tour in Germany after more than ten years. He is promoting his 21st studio album »Keeping Secrets Will Destroy You« (Domino Records). Rolling Stone magazine named it the 6th best album of 2023, and Musikexpress wrote: »A classic singer/songwriter album from someone who is a classic himself and knows it. And you know that he knows that we know that too, at the latest when he sings: 'Ding dong / Ding dong ding dong'. Yes, seriously: the way Bonnie 'Prince' Billy sings poetry, even the tinkling of the 'Crazy Blue Bells' becomes poetry.«
