Have we all calmed down about that surprise release of James Blake’s new album yet? Nope? Oh well - Bon Iver’s opened up on the collaboration anyway.
Taking to his @blobtower Twitter account to talk their collaboration on ‘I Need A Forest Fire’, Justin Vernon declared the track “came from wonderful accidents and good friendship.”
“James , or Jim as I call him when I’m upset with him,” Vernon continued, perhaps veering a little into ‘TMI’ territory, “is such a powerful musician To be like Aaron Neville , AND aphex? Also, nothngelse.”
The pair previously collaborated on ‘Fall Creek Boys Choir’, before revealing another link-up earlier this year. James Blake’s new solo album, ‘The Colour In Anything’ is released tonight (May 5th / 6th) at midnight GMT. He’s already shared three new tracks and the track-listing tonight. Anything could happen in the next two hours.
