This much is obvious: folk singer/songwriter Will Oldham (you might know him as Bonnie “Prince” Billy or any of his former Palace offshoots) is consistent. He’s released one or two albums per year for close to 20 years, collaborating with a staggering number of musicians, including Johnny Cash, Mark Lanegan, Nico Muhly, and Rob Mazurek.

Now, with the release of the new two-track 10-inch, There is No God, he can add philanthropy to his growing list of accomplishments. Proceeds from record sales will benefit two aquatic charities: Save Our Gulf and The Turtle Hospital. Oldham took a trip down a murky bayou for the “There is No God” video (watch here) — a quintessentially American landscape for his classically Americana tune. The release is rounded out by a track called “God is Love” and a free ringtone download of the title track.
