Will Oldham Takes On R. Kelly, Danzig
Wed, 24 Oct 2007 12:39:13
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
8. The World's Greatest (R. Kelly cover)
Maybe this Kanye West video cover was his inspiration?
