Hear Bon Iver cover Peter Gabriel's 'Come Talk To Me' – audio
Justin Vernon and co record version of former Genesis frontman's 1992 track
The track, which was originally released on the former Genesis frontman's 1992 album 'Us', is set to appear as the B-side to Bon Iver's new single 'Holocene', which is slated for a September 5 release. 'Holocene' is the second single taken from the band's new self-titled LP.
Bon Iver are returning the compliment after Gabriel recorded a version of their song 'Flume' for his 2010 covers album 'Scratch My Back', alongside songs by Regina Spektor, Arcade Fire and Elbow.
Gabriel has since announced that he intends to release a second covers album, titled 'I'll Scratch Yours', with many of the bands he covered performing renditions of his songs. Elbow, Lou Reed, Paul Simon and the Bon Iver version of 'Come Talk To Me' are all set to appear on this LP.
Bon Iver play their biggest UK tour to date in October.
