Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy shares video for new single ‘No Time To Cry’
Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy shares the video for his single, No Time To Cry taken from his new album Best Troubadour.
The album is an affectionate homage to the Merle Haggard songbook landing on pages unmoored from their time and located anew. With such a prolific catalogue of work, Bonnie and the Bonafide United Musicians were tasked with representing an earnest and faithful reworking of Haggard’s greatest songs.
Released on one of Merle’s lesser known albums, 1996, the single, No Time to Cry is a truly poignant and deft reinterpretation of Iris DeMent’s ballad on loss and growing older. To accompany the song, Bonnie and Co. have released a stripped down music video of footage taken during the live recording sessions for Best Troubadour.
