Bill Callahan and Bonnie "Prince" Billy continue with their cover series, this time recruiting The Cairo Gang's Emmett Kelly to contribute to their cover of Air Supply's "Lost In Love".

After teaming up with Ty Segall on a cover of Johnnie Frierson's "Miracles" last week, Callahan and Bonnie "Prince" Billy (real name Will Oldham), have covered Air Supply's "Lost In Love" with help from Emmett Kelly.

Callahan wrote of the cover on Twitter, "emmett kelly made the bed, joshua abrams fluffed the pillows with his bass, Will Oldham and i couldn’t resist getting in and singing."

Other covers by Callahan and Oldham that have been released over recent months include 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.

Bill Callahan and Bonnie "Prince" Billy's cover of Air Supply's "Lost In Love" featuring Emmett Kelly is out now on Drag City.
