Bill Callahan and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy have enlisted Hamerkop for a cover of Scout Niblett’s ‘Kidnapped by Neptune’. It’s set to appear on the newly announced Bind Date Party compilation, which collects all 19 covers the pair have released over the past year. It’s due out December 10 via Drag City. Listen to their version of ‘Kidnapped by Neptune’ below.
Callahan and Will Oldham last released a cover of the late John Prine’s ‘She Is My Everything’ back in March. Blind Date Party includes their take on songs by Steely Dan, Yusuf / Cat Stevens, Dave Rich, Billie Eilish, Robert Wyatt, Lou Reed, and more. Each of their covers features at least one guest; Hamerkop is the duo of Bachelorette’s Annabel Alpers and Adam Cooke, who issued their debut album Remote on Drag City in 2019.
