It’s a subtle distinction, but the split between Will Oldham and his songwriting aliases palace & bonny is important here – Oldham is the writer, not the musician, and these intimate versions take on a new world of their own here.

‘Songs of Love and Horror’ is a rare entry in this ouvre: a Will Oldham album, with the writer taking a turn as singer. As befits the nature of this project, the songs are sung and played by Will alone, in a setting enjoyed by fans of his music - that of one voice and one guitar, the better to savor the spare changes and starkly-cut lyrics, operating in quiet tension and ultimate collaboration. Will brings to the songs all that he has learned from his stage-crafting fellows over the years, singing new versions that quiver like fresh young things in the air of today.
