It seems like the barrage of cover tracks coming from Bill Callahan and Bonnie “Prince” Billy aren’t slowing down any time soon. Though we missed it when it dropped, the two artists went and covered the Billie Eilish track “Wish You Were Gay.” While it came out in October, the song hits perfectly especially with the featured voice of Sean O’Hagan.
The strings that meet with the electronics that open the song only get heightened by Callahan’s voice. The mix of the instruments highlights the arrangements while Livvy O’Hagan mixes her multiple vocals in before everyone chimes in on the chorus. As O’Hagan takes the lead, the others fall underneath in a stirring group vocal sound that’s hard not to love.
The song can be heard above or wherever you stream music. It can also be purchased in all digital outlets or directly from Drag City Records.
