BONNIE PRINCE BILLY’s KEEPING SECRETS WILL DESTROY YOU presents simply – an album made as it was meant to be heard, in a room. The sound of people together – a sound we’d so recently feared that we’d lost – playing, communing, strings and wood and keys and voices singing.
It’s out NOW on CD & LP. Order your copy HERE.
Keeping Secrets Will Destroy You presents simply, and is sung along easily and happily with in time BUT –is it family portrait or fairy tale? How does it think the world was made, and will end?
Keeping Secrets Will Destroy You was recorded in Louisville by Nick Roeder, featuring Sara Louise Callaway on violin, Kendall Carter on keys, Elisabeth Fuchsia on viola and violin, Dave Howard on mandolin, Drew Miller on saxophone and Dane Waters’ voice.
The presence of so many local players and music educators in the band lends not only to a flow of moments so fluidly encompassing of a wide range of musics from classical to Japanese acid folk and elsewhere, but perhaps even more importantly, to the sense of community, heredity and the triumph of inheritance that is the marrow and life blood of this music.
Keeping Secrets Will Destroy You is a tale old as time. It’s an album. Its songs and music are by and for people together. For listening together. Before it gets too late. Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy stands at the nexus all the kinds of music he can summon, with friends, with family and community.
All roads roll though him. There can be no holding back. A million billion moments are on the line. He’s gonna tell us about a world.
