Veteran singer-songwriter Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has released a video for "Quail and Dumplings." Watch above.

The video features Will Oldham (A.K.A. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy) enjoying himself at a water park, taking all the proper precautions and using plenty of sunscreen. There are some zany Bonnie Billy moments, a love triangle, and some apparent inner turmoil that reveals itself for a moment with an abrupt ending. It's quite the spectacle.

The song is dynamic, with subdued instrumentals on the verses and turned up guitars and fiddle on the chorus. Somehow it comes across both lighthearted and onerous, like the balance of fun and tension in the video. It's the balance that Billy pulls off exceptionally well.

The track is featured on Singer's Grave a Sea of Tongues, out now via Drag City. Get it on Amazon. For more on Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, check out his Zumic artist page.
