Bon Iver and James Blake set to collaborate

'Fall Creek Boys Choir' will be revealed next week

Bon Iver and James Blake are set to collaborate on a project entitled ‘Fall Creek Boys Choir’.

Brit Blake announced the news via his Twitter account, though has so far been scant on the details about what form the project will take. Fall Creek however is the name of the town in which Justin Vernon of Bon Iver owns a studio.

The tweet simply reads: “24th August 2011 – James Blake & Bon Iver ‘Fall Creek Boys Choir’”.


Bon Iver recently covered Peter Gabriel‘s ‘Come Talk To Me’ for the B-side to the band’s new single ‘Holocene’. Watch the video for ‘Holocene’ below. Directed by Nabil Elderkin, the video was shot on location in Iceland.

Says Elderkin of the video: “That place is the most magical place in the world, it looked like Mars to me, so I always wanted to shoot there.” The 12” version of the single is released on September 5.

Bon Iver are set to embark on their biggest UK tour to date this October. The tour is totally sold out.
