OK, so perhaps we were overreacting below. So, while the sun still shines let's make some beautiful hay. Or something.

Bonnie "Prince" Billy aka Will Oldham aka Palace Music aka that guy with the beard, is back with a new album, entitled Beware. The first single, 'I Am Goodbye', has this rather lovely video to accompany it.

It's like that Massive Attack video but instead of Shara Nelson there's a tramp in her place.

Oldham has been doing interviews and photoshoots in support of this album and there are rumours he's, you know, happy and laughing and stuff. We've always felt there's more to him then simply a miserable guy with facial hair. This is all the evidence you need surely:

Funny as fuck.
