Jason Feathers is the new side project of Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, with rapper Astronautilus .

News of the project was recently revealed via a short, one-minute long film on the website of Totally Gross National Product, also home to Lizzo, Marijuana Deathsquads and Polica. An album, called 'De Oro', will be released in September, but the record is currently streaming at Pitchfork.

Pitchfork call Jason Feathers a 'mystery band', but Rolling Stone writes that Vernon has taken on the alter-ego of Ephasis, described in a press release as "a heavily seasoned guitar-crooning lost cowboy". Rapper Astronautalis appears as "Creflo aka Jason Feathers," who is dubbed "a red-chested god-bassed Southern rapper in a fancy white suit." Bon Iver's S Carey also plays on the record as a musician called Toothpick. The album stream will be available until August 25 and can be found by clicking here.

Bon Iver recently revealed a new song, 'Heavenly Father', taken from the soundtrack to Zach Braff film Wish I Was Here. 'Heavenly Father' is the first new material from Justin Vernon's Bon Iver since 'Bon Iver, Bon Iver' in 2011. It appears on Braff's Garden State follow-up alongside songs by The Shins plus Cat Power and Coldplay, who have collaborated on the title track, 'Wish I Was Here'.

Justin Vernon has recently joined both Sharon Van Etten and The National onstage, and is reportedly collaborating with James Blake on the Mercury Prize winner's new album. Last year he released an album with another of his side projects, Volcano Choir, and also produced The Staves.
