BONNIE PRINCE BILLY SHARES VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE QUAIL AND DUMPLINGS

Bonnie Prince Billy | 15/10/14

Image: BPBQuailDumplings

The "Quail and Dumplings" single plays in the wake of Singer's Grave a Sea of Tongues, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's latest album which exists simultaneously as a new album, an alternate-reality version of Wolfroy Goes To Town and the concluding record of two separate perceived trilogies within the Prince's catalog. There is much on the table here, and "Quail and Dumplings" manages to balance contrasting perspectives within itself - one of great lack and wanting, and the other of a sense of greatness coming. This shifting tone is greatly enhanced by the fiddle of Billy Contreras and the remarkable voice of the well-travelled Caroline Peyton. The song alludes to travelers who may be unclear on when their next meal is coming, but are still determined to keep their positive outlook on the journey of life. And much like the song itself, the video for “Quail and Dumplings” operates with a set of conflicting perspectives! You’ll find Bonnie & friends’ frolicking through the “Quail and Dumplings” water park enjoying all that the day has to offer, but is all what it seems? The struggle between the balances of happiness and grief and its contrast become apparent during their day, but will the friends overcome it?

Always expect the unexpected with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy; and only His Grace can enhance the song’s shifting tone in such an uproarious fashion! The "Quail and Dumplings" video, directed by Ben Berman, has been called "the greatest video ever made" - watch and agree!

Quail and Dumplings will be available on 7" (RUG633) and as a 2 track Digital Bundle (RUG633D) backed with “Pull Your Eyes Out, Molly".

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy will be playing the following dates:

18 November: St John’s, London, UK

19 November: St John’s, London, UK

20 November: AB, Brussels, Belgium

21 November: Le Guess Who Festival, Utrecht, Netherlands

Following a UK tour which included two sold out, exceptional shows at London’s Milton Court at The Barbican, King Creosote can announce another UK tour for January and February 2015. The dates will include an extra night at London’s Union Chapel on 2nd February 2015; the 3rd February show is now sold out. These will be standard King Creosote shows (with no film screening). Tickets will go on sale this Thursday.

King Creosote has also been confirmed to play The Royal Concert Hall on Thursday 22nd January as part of Celtic Connections. As with the Milton Court shows, Kenny will be performing the music from ‘From Scotland With Love’ live to a screening of the film, this time augmented by a ten-piece band for what promises to be a very special night. This will also be the last chance for some time to see the film accompanied by a live performance.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday 16th October at 10am, except for Celtic Connections (which is on sale now) and Belfast (which is on sale on Friday). Full dates with ticket links are as follows:

From Scotland With Love, which critics described as ‘a lovingly crafted thing’ (Independent on Sunday), ‘consistently superb’ (Loud & Quiet – 9/10) and ‘a beautiful thing, flitting between affecting, inspiring, amusing and enchanting’ (Time Out – 4* lead review), was created in collaboration with director Virginia Heath and Producer Grant Keir as an audio-accompaniment to a poetic documentary film of the same name. Featuring archive footage from the National Library of Scotland Scottish Screen Archive, but no narration or interview, the film works around themes of love and loss, war, resistance, emigration, work and play, and is driven as much by the music as it is the images. For the first time King Creosote found himself being able to write from other people’s perspectives. The result is From Scotland With Love, one of King Creosote’s most widescreen cinematic and finest pieces of work to date. From Scotland With Love is available now through Dom Mart, and iTunes, with an extended version available HERE.

Watch the videos for Something To Believe In’ and ‘For One Night Only’, featuring footage from the film ‘From Scotland With Love’.
