Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & broeder Dieleman are sharing a 7" for Record Store Day. Billy translated Gloria into English. Dieleman turned Three Questions into Drie Vragen. Folk music doesn't care about borders or language barriers. Kindred spirits will find a way to connect and collaborate. After sharing the stage on an acoustic tour of 8 Dutch church they kept in touch. The decision to cut a shared single was a no-brainer. It is an intense and gentle token of a transatlantic musical kinship. Fingers crossed for a follow-up in the near future.
The split 7" is a special release for Record Store Day (April 18th) on Snowstar Records: 1000 copies for the Benelux and 1000 copies for the US.
