Description

Limited 10" vinyl featuring previously unreleased recordings of Ciaran Lavery interpreting 5 original Bonnie Prince Billy songs. Original RSD release, product not available on any other formats.  Fresh from releasing his excellent 'Live At The Mac' album in December of last year, 2016 Northern Ireland Music Prize winner Ciaran Lavery is back with 'A King At Night EP' a collection of Bonnie Prince Billy numbers, the five track EP will be released as a very special Record Store Day offering in 10" format. Will Oldham is an artist that has long fascinated Lavery and this release acts as 'a fitting nod of appreciation' to the legendary songwriter. Given the depth of Oldham's back catalogue as Bonnie Prince Billy, Ciaran had a wealth of extraordinary tracks to choose from, leading him to plump for ones 'that sat well within the realms of the world we created in the studio'. 'New Partner', the lead track from the EP, is a beautifully delicate rumination on new - found love, while 'Horses' features exquisite strings and brass. 'Bad Man' is a punchy, brooding number, its sharp electric guitar part adding a menacing undertone. 'Beast For Thee' is entirely subtle yet incredibly powerful and perhaps the EP's most sensitive moment, while closer 'Miss Me When I Burn' needs only simple piano, coupled with Ciaran's sensitive, bruised, vocal performance to carry the weight of such an emotional track. A profoundly beautiful tribute to the work of Bonnie Prince Billy, Ciaran Lavery's 'A King At Night' is released through Believe Recordings on the 22nd of April.
