The pair premiered the track on BBC Radio One earlier this evening (August 24), just six days after Blake had announced via Twitter that he and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver had written a song together. His tweet simply read: “24th August 2011 – James Blake & Bon Iver’s ‘Fall Creek Boys Choir’.”
Although there is no information as to whether the collaboration will be just a one-off track or if there is more material to come, it has been revealed that the pair did not meet in person to work together but instead composed the song over email in the spring of this year.
The track will also be made available via iTunes on August 29.
Earlier this month, James Blake announced a four-date UK tour to take place this November. The singer will play:
Leeds University (November 25)
Manchester Warehouse Project (26)
Bristol Anson Rooms (29)
HMV London Forum (30)
