DOWNLOAD VIDEO: Bill Fay – Filled With Wonder Once Again
Other than the 2017 one-off “Shame,” veteran British folk musician Bill Fay hasn’t released any music since 2015’s lovely Who Is The Sender? That hiatus is nothing by Bill Fay standards, though; he famously went 40 years between proper studio albums, returning with 2012’s Life Is People after reissues of his first two albums and assorted other recordings amplified his cult-favorite status.
Fay will release a new album called Countless Branches this January, the third in his series of late-career LPs produced by Joshua Henry and released by Dead Oceans. According to a press release, this one is the most pared-back of the trilogy, mostly just Fay and his piano or guitar with minimal accompaniment. In the case of lead single “Filled With Wonder Once Again,” that formula yields staggeringly beautiful results. It’s released today with a video directed by Emily Scaife, which you can watch below.
