The Letting Go is a 2006 studio album by American musician Will Oldham, released under his moniker Bonnie "Prince" Billy.

Dawn McCarthy of Faun Fables also sings on the album.
The album's name comes from the last lines of the Emily Dickinson poem that starts "After a Great Pain, A Formal Feeling Comes."
This is the hour of lead
Remembered if outlived,
As freezing persons recollect the snow,
First chill, then stupor, then the letting go.
