Bonnie "Prince" Billy & broeder Dieleman - Split 7" - 2015


In 2014 Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and broeder Dieleman played a tour together, consisting of eight fully acoustic shows spread throughout the Netherlands. The tour was sold out within an hour, and plenty of reason for both artists to do a follow-up. 

The result was a split 7" for Record Store Day 2015. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy is regarded as an inspiration for, and is praised by, many great international recording artists. His songs have previously been covered by the likes of Johnny Cash and Mark Lanegan. For this 2015 RSD release he translated 'Gloria' by broeder Dieleman into English. Broeder Dieleman covered Oldham's Three Questions in Zealandic dialect.
