Bon Iver

Bon Iver has a video for the second single off his incredible self titled album, “Holocene.” The video was directed by Nabil Elderkin (Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Common) and premiered today on National Geographic. Nabil spoke of the Icelandic countryside in which the video was shot:

That place is the most magical place in the world, it looked like Mars to me, so I always wanted to shoot there. When Bon Iver gave me the reigns on this video, I knew it had to be filmed there.

Bon Iver is also releasing the track as a 12″ single b/w a cover of Peter Gabriel‘s “Come Talk To Me.” The 12″ will be released September 6 via Jagjaguwar. Check out the single’s artwork and the video below.

In related news, rumors continue to spread about the possible collaboration with James Blake following a very vague tweet from James that mentioned the “Fall Creek Boys Choir.” Still no updates on what the collaboration is going to be, but the Fall Creek Boys Choir appears to be some a cappella recordings done by Justin Vernon a few years ago.
