Listen to the new Bon Iver/James Blake collaboration

Pin it

Hey kids, do you love to listen to sparsely spaced keyboard notes combined with the "artistic" use of autotune? Yes? Well, then this collaboration is going to knock your socks off. Last week, James Blake enigmatically tweeted, "24th August 2011 – James Blake & Bon Iver 'Fall Creek Boys Choir," though he didn't reveal the form the collaboration would take. Today, he debuted the song "Fall Creek Boys Choir" on BBC's Radio 1. 

Instrumentation on the track is provided by James Blake, while the vocals were achieved by Justin Vernon autotuning his voice, then harmonizing with the autotuned track in his real voice. The future of music is banging pots and pans together, alone in your kitchen, then autotuning it.
