Bill Callahan, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, and Matt Sweeney Cover Hank Williams, Jr.: Listen


Bill Callahan, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, and Matt Sweeney have shared a new cover of Hank Williams, Jr.’s 1979 song “O.D.’d in Denver.” Hear the “O.D.’d in Denver” cover, and also the original, below.

In a statement, Sweeney said, “One of the many beautiful things about the original ‘O.D.’d in Denver’ is the contrast between Hank Williams, Jr.’s effortless carefree vocal and the song’s bleak desperate words.” He added, “Hank’s version’s narrator thinks he’s gotten over his night in Denver—I wanted this WillBilly track to feel like we’re catching our singer deep in the fear spiral.” Find the full statement below.

Last week, Bill Callahan and Bonnie “Prince” Billy recruited AZITA for a cover of Yusuf / Cat Stevens’ 1967 song “Blackness of the Night.”

Back in March, Bonnie and Matt Sweeney shared the unreleased Superwolf songYou’ll Get Eaten, Too.”
