Bon Iver - Bon Iver Announce The Release of New Single, 'Holocene'
Bon Iver : Bon Iver Announce The Release of New Single, 'Holocene'
20th July 2011

Following the success of Bon Iver's self-titled second album, 'Holocene' is to be released as a 12" single on 5th September. The second single to be taken from the record, it mimics first single 'Calgary' by also featuring a cover on its B side. Whereas 'Calgary' was backed by a version of Bonnie Raitt's 'I Can't Make You Love Me', this time out, Justin Vernon has chosen to cover Peter Gabriel's 'Come Talk To Me', originally released as an extremely limited run for Record Store Day last year.

For his upcoming tour in October, Justin Vernon will perform with an 8-piece band that includes many musicians who contributed to the Bon Iver release. The touring band will consist of regular Bon Iver contributors Sean Carey (drums, piano), Mike Noyce (guitar) and Matt McCaughan (drums), as well as Rob Moose on violin and guitar (Antony and the Johnsons, The National), Mike Lewis on bass (Andrew Bird, Happy Apple), and a horn section including Reginald Pace, Colin Stetson (Tom Waits, Arcade Fire), and C.J. Camerieri (Rufus Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens). Please note all UK dates are sold out.
