The artist formerly known as Smog is back with another album. Bill Callahan's latest 'Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle' offers up nine more songs of his trademark dark folk. I dare say this record almost sound hopeful though...with several songs featuring beautiful string accompaniment and lyrics which are even a little more optimistic. Hopeful by Bill Callahan standards anyway...whatever it is, it's a gorgeous album.
The record hits stores on April 14th...here is a track to preview. Enjoy.
