New Bon Iver Interview with Triple J!

Justin Vernon and Zan Rowe of Triple J

Back in March at SXSW we had a terrific secret: there was a new Bon Iver album coming.  Justin did one interview, and one interview only – Australia’s Triple J. Zan Rowe is a tremendous fan and had traveled all the way around the world, so we had to let her in on it.  She recorded a terrific interview to announce Bon Iver, Bon Iver to the listeners on her show – Mornings with Zan. Not surprisingly they spoke about the first song, “Perth,” and Justin’s connection to Australia. The rest of the (very illuminating) interview will likely go live in June.

Preceding their January performance at Chicago’s Tomorrow Never Knows Festival, Besnards played a whirling rendition of album standout “And This Is What We Call Progress.” Watch it over at Pitchfork.TV or in the video above.

BON IVER Covers Feist On Australian Radio

As Bon Iver wraps up an Australian tour this weekend, a recent appearance on Australia’s government-funded radio session, Triple J, included Justin Vernon’s take on Feist’s “The Park,” to which he brings his haunting – and comforting – falsetto. Stream the entire interview with Triple J HERE.

Stereogum is also offering a download of Bon Iver’s cover of “The Park” HERE.

Both Bon Iver and Feist recently appeared on the Dark Was The Night compilation, to which Bon Iver contributed the track “Brackett, WI.” The compilation benefits the Red Hot Organization, an international charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for HIV and AIDS.
