Later this spring, Bonnie Prince Billy will be releasing a new album comprised entirely of Merle Haggard covers - who the musician has often mentioned as one of his biggest influences and his "forever hero".

Among the tracks on the album is his take on 'Mama Tried', the title-track from the late musician's 1968 album, whose visuals Billy now unveils in the form of a 360º VR video. Lose yourself in it below.

Best Troubadour is out on May 5th via Drag City.
