DAWN MCCARTHY AND BONNIE “PRINCE” BILLY - CHRISTMAS EVE CAN KILL YOU VIDEO PREMIERE ON THE WARHOL MUSEUM'S WEBSITE
Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie "Prince" Billy | 14/11/12
In anticipation of their forthcoming holiday single Christmas Eve Can Kill You, old friends and collaborators Dawn McCarthy and Will Oldham present you with a gift: a video shot by Lara Miranda during the track's Nashville recording sessions produced by David Ferguson at Butcher Shop Studio, as well as footage depicting the spirit of the project from McCreary County, KY.
This is definitely not what one expects to see in a holiday music video - there's no snow, no presents, no sacrificial goose or other consumable indulgences just the elements at the core of why people celebrate holidays to begin with - friendship, collaboration, warmth, rejuvenation and joy.
Christmas Eve Can Kill You also offers a foreshadowing glimpse at Oldham and McCarthy’s forthcoming full-length record of songs they learned from Everly Brothers records; a project inspired by the songstress’ young daughters' love of the rhythm and blues duo. Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie “Prince” Billy- Christmas Eve Can Kill You b/w Lovey Kravezit 7” comes out on the 19th of November 2012 on Domino. Pre-order the single here.
