Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has a new single, a wonderful cover of Ramones' "Outsider." His rendition of the Dee Dee-penned song, from Ramones' 1983 album Subterranean Jungle, turns it into a wanderin', lonesome cowboy ballad. It was recorded back in 2016 and features the late David Berman, as well as William Tyler, Chris Scruggs and drummer Pete Townsend (not to be confused with The Who's Pete Townshend). Listen below.
