New Video: Peter Gabriel and Justin Vernon Discuss Covering Each Other’s Songs

To celebrate the release of Scratch My Back and the impending Record Store Day split 7″ by Bon Iver and Peter Gabriel, Real World has released a film featuring the two artists discussing the songs.  Both interviews include audio of Peter Gabriel’s “Flume” and (never before heard!) Bon Iver’s “Come Talk To Me.”  It’s a really special video, and I’m tearing up a little bit.  Okay, I’m tearing up a lot.

Make sure to arrive early and  pick up this 7″ on 4/17 at your local Record Store Day celebration.

Justin Vernon: Um, hi Peter Gabriel. You’d like to do what with the what now?
