Hear Bill Callahan’s ‘Baby’s Breath’, new album details and tour dates

‘Baby’s Breath’ is the first sample from Bill Callahan‘s upcoming Apocalypse LP which is set for release in April on Drag City.

The lead single is sparse, stark and striking – hypnotic plucked guitar, muffled snare drums, building and easing tension and of course Callahan’s rich drawl.
