Bonny Light Horseman Shares “Someone to Weep For Me”

Bonny Light Horseman today released “Someone to Weep For Me,” the breezy and bittersweet final single from their anticipated sophomore album, Rolling Golden Holy (37d03d). Due out next Friday, October 7th, the new LP is earning rave early reviews in the UK. “Someone to Weep For Me” follows singles “Sweetbread,”“Exile,” “Summer Dream” and “California”– which earned praise and support.  Rolling Golden Holy is available for pre-order HERE.

Produced by Kaufman, Rolling Golden Holy is the follow-up to Bonny Light Horseman’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut, which earned two GRAMMY nominations (Best Folk Album and Best American Roots Performance) and was named one of the ‘Best Albums of 2020’ by Paste, Boston Globe, MOJOUncut Magazine, and more. The band’s U.S. headline tour begins this Friday, September 30th, in Sonoma, CA; a current itinerary is below.

If Bonny Light Horseman’s debut LP felt at all like the work of some short-lived supergroup or a one-off diversion (it never was), Rolling Golden Holy rebuffs the notion with preternatural beauty, charm, and imagination. These 11 songs—all originals, written and realized by the trio as a whole—follow the paths of the traditional tunes the band cherishes to new musical and lyrical frontiers, and give the sounds and situations of history the gravity and shape of now. Rolling Golden Holy confirms that Bonny Light Horseman is not a project but a band, and one presently working at the forefront of modern American folk.
