I see a new Bonny risin'! Coming this summer is an EP of new versions of Bonny classics from years gone by - fresh-minted by his constant companions of late, Ben Boye, Van Campbell, Emmett Kelly, Danny Kiely and Angel Olson. Before you roll your eyes, and ask "Greatest Palace Music too?" get an eye-full of the rolling going on in the Ben Berman-directed video, which premiered on the good ol' New York Times (remember them?) and is now up and lively on our sites, for you. Jeezus! Featuring a wraith-like Oldham shuffling merrily through the ancient lanes of Glasgow, bopping his way through a cemetery, stopping for drinks at local pubs and marching on through the flow of humanity with his band, "I See a Darkness" two-point-whoa is fun, friendly and of course, ghastly and horrifying. Why would we want it any other way?

The EP is to be called "Now Here's My Plan." There's five more songs a-comin' - but what will their videos be? Will there be any videos at all? "Now Here's My Plan" - coming on July 24th!
