Bill Callahan and Bonnie "Prince" Billy are back with another cover, this time tackling Johnnie Frierson's "Miracles" with help from Ty Segall.

After releasing their cover of Lou Reed's "Rooftop Garden" featuring Xylouris White's George Xylouris on New Year's Day, frequent collaborators Callahan and Bonnie "Prince" Billy have now joined forces with Ty Segall for their latest cover.

The duo's new cover with Segall is of late Memphis soul and gospel singer Johnnie Frierson's "Miracles".

Callahan and Billy - real name Will Oldham - have been covering various tracks over the past few months, including Little Feat's "I've Been the One" with Meg Baird,

Robert Wyatt's "Sea Song" with Mick Turner, Steely Dan's "Deacon Blues", Billie Eilish's "Wish You Were Gay" with The High Llamas’ Sean O’Hagan. Other covers by Callahan and Oldham include their version of Yusuf/Cat Stevens' "Blackness of the Night" with AZITA, and a cover of Hank Williams Jr.'s "O.D.'d in Denver" featuring Matt Sweeney.
