Bon Iver and James Blake Premiere Collaborative Track
Published Aug 24, 2011Well, mystery solved. After James Blake hinted last week at some sort of collaboration with Bon Iver, the pair have revealed that they will roll out a collaborative track called "Fall Creek Boys Choir" later today (August 24).
The song will be broadcasted on the UK's BBC Radio 1 at 7:30 p.m. local time, meaning 2:30 p.m. EST. It will be available here on YouTube after the song plays, which should be about anytime now.
UPDATE: You can now listen to "Fall Creek Boys Choir" below. It will also be released via iTunes on August 29.
A press release explains that Blake and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon collaborated on the song this spring via email. The PR also had this to say about "Fall Creek Boys Choir": "Over the past year James has cited Justin as a key influence and it was via a chance meeting at this years SXSW festival in Austin, Texas that the seed was sown for a future collaboration."
Thanks to Pitchfork for the heads-up.
