Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon has performed a new Big Red Machine song ‘The Latter Days’.
The frontman showcased the new track during his latest Visit With Vernon session, in Winconsin in which undecided voters sit down with the him for a conversation about the forthcoming election.
Earlier this month, Vernon paid tribute to the late Supreme Court Judge, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with a new song, ‘Your Honor’, for the session.
This time he showcased Big Red Machine’s latest track, which was written by Vernon, bandmate Aaron Dessner and Hadestown writer Anaïs Mitchell. You can watch the performance below.
“The Big Red Machine stuff is quite far along and actually, Taylor has been amazing. I’ve shared all of that stuff with her, and she has been really helpful,” he said.
Big Red Machine started as a collaboration between Dessner and Vernon in 2008, but later grew into a multi-artist collective. A self-titled album was released in 2018.
Having originally shared a demo of the song with Stipe performing it from his home in lockdown back in March before performing the track on a number of talk shows, the duo then shared the studio version and the video under Dessner’s Big Red Machine moniker.
