TGIF, everyone! I had Stefania take this picture of me laid out on a pile of ice in the Jagjaguwar parking lot this afternoon. Feels good, man.
The internet heard a rumor yesterday about Kanye West and Bon Iver working together and RAN WITH IT. I read some true things and some false things, but overall everyone got the gist. There is a new track on Kanye’s upcoming October (currently untitled) record that features a sample from the Bon Iver song “Woods” and vocals from Justin Vernon called “Lost in the World.”
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Kanye said the following about Justin:
“He’s similar to me, like where he just does shit just so people would be like, ‘Oh shit how did you do that? How did that happen?’ He’s just a really cool guy to be around.”
Justin Vernon did his first lengthy interview in over a year with Ryan Dombal at Pitchfork. In the article, which just went up, he elaborates on the project with Kanye, hanging out in Hawaii and his relationship/work with GAYNGS.
