Bon Iver headlined British festival All Points East over the weekend, and while they didn’t exactly *play* new music, they did, er, share new music. When the band finished their set — comprised of tracks from their records For Emma, Forever Ago, Bon Iver and 22, A Million — two songs from their upcoming record played over the festival’s loudspeakers, set to visuals.
The two songs, titled "Hey, Ma" and "U (Man Like)." were accompanied by a sign directing festival attendees to a website called icommai, which details a list of Bon Iver collaborators over the years. Check out both songs below, alongside footage of their reveal in London.
"Hey, Ma" and "U (Man Like)" feature contributions from Bruce Hornsby, Moses Sumney, Jenn Wasner, Elsa Jensen, Psymun, Phil Cook, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and others according to a press release.
In addition to the new songs, Bon Iver have also announced North American tour dates for September and October, including Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Feist, Indigo Girls, Sharon Van Etten, and Yo La Tengo will support on select dates.
