    Will Oldham Takes On R. Kelly, Danzig - What, no Prince?

    The scruffy folk troubadour Will Oldham will release his new album, Ask Forgiveness, on November 20 via Drag City under the guise of Bonnie "Prince" Billy. The eight-song album fills its oddball quota with three incongruous three covers, R. Kelly's "The World's Greatest," Danzig's "Am I Demon," and Bjork's "I've Seen It All."

    Considering Oldham was kind enough to make a cameo in R. Kelly's last Trapped in the Closet cycle, we're hoping Kells returns the favor in a video for him.

    This is the tracklisting:

    1. I Came Here to Hear the Music
    2. I've Seen It All (Björk cover)
    3. Am I Demon (Danzig cover)
    4. My Life
    5. I'm Loving the Street
    6. The Way I Am
    7. Cycles
    8. The World's Greatest (R. Kelly cover)

    Maybe this Kanye West video cover was his inspiration?
