Scout Niblett returns with her fourth full length album, This Fool Can Die Now. Recorded at Electrical Audio with Steve Albini, featuring a rhythm section of Kristian Goddard and Chris Saligoe, while Will Oldham (aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy) contributes vocals on the album's four duets, two of which are covers. On the first track 'Do You Wanna Be Buried With My People' Scout's mournful pleas glide alongside Will Oldham's emotive vocals. The skeletal 'Moon Lake', a signature Scout drums and vocals song, sits alongside the vocal harmonies From the impassioned voice of 'Baby Emma' and the plaintive cries of 'Nevada' to the guitar-driven indignation of 'Let Thine Heart Be Warmed' and 'Your Last Chariot', 'This Fool Can Die Now' is a body of 14 songs that traverse a spectrum of charged emotions from yearning and grief to resignation and acceptance. Major US touring upon release date.
