Bon Iver Releases New Video, Announces Show with Feist

Bon Iver – Towers (Official Music Video) from Bon Iver on Vimeo.

Bon Iver brings us a brilliant new music video for “Towers,” a single off of their Grammy winning album, Bon Iver. Directed by filmmaker Nabil Elderkin, who you’ll recognize as the director for “Holocene,” the video follows one man through a beautiful part of Washington state, home to Indian-preserved land. Elderkin told us, “When Justin sent me a breakdown of what certain parts/lines of the song meant to him I did my best to decode it and curate into something simple, and hopefully the viewer can take from it their own feeling of what the towers represent.” How “simple” could describe such a breathtaking video boggles the mind, but indeed it does. A pure simplicity rings true to the work, with no gimmicks or overt constructionism at play. The video grows organically, breathing additional life into a song that already aurally invokes the senses. Joining the audio now is a stimulating visual experience. Do watch the video above.

Bon Iver also announces a new Towers 12-inch, featuring a cover of John Prine’s “Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)” as the b-side. The single is out March 6th and you can pre-order it HERE.

Lastly, Bon Iver joins Feist at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on May 31st for what is sure to be an amazing show. See full list of dates HERE.
