Bonnie Prince Billy to cover Mariah Carey?


Devendra Banhart has covered Oasis for a new compilation.

The singer does a version of ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ on the compilations ‘Guilt By Association’, which is set to be released on August 27.

‘What the piss is going on’ you may well be thinking. Well, it explaining the logic behind the album, Wes Verhoeve general manager of Engine Room, who are releasing the album, said: "A lot of really great bands were being dropped from the major labels at that time, and we thought it would be a cool idea to have bands like that cover some of the acts that were actually being supported by the majors."
