- Ask Forgiveness [Import]
- Artist: Bonnie "Prince" Billy
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 11/19/2007
The prolific Bonnie 'Prince' Billy returns to delight and intrigue with Ask Forgiveness released on the 19th November. A collection of cover version victories, effortlessly (it seems) making each one of these songs his own, having taken them within and loved them - and then singing them out again in his own idiosyncratic interpretation. Covering a handful of wildly diverse artists as varied as Björk Guðmundsdóttir and R Kelly, these renditions were recorded off the hoof in Philadelphia with a stripped down ensemble including Meg Baird of Espers on acoustics and vocals, Greg Weeks on electric guitar, aided and abetted by Maggie Wienk on cello.
