Watch Bon Iver debut new material live

Justin Vernon and co played two Massachusetts shows over the weekend with Minnesota contemporary dance company Tu Dance​.

Over the weekend, Bon Iver performed two shows at MASS MoCa in North Adams, Massachusetts with the Minnesota contemporary dance company Tu Dance, and debuted new material.

The two-night event was soundtracked by a “work-in-progress” score from Justin Vernon. It follows the band’s recent London residency, where they played eight(!) nights at Hammersmith Apollo.

The band also recently played another unreleased song - ‘Hayward, WI’ - at their ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’ anniversary show earlier this year.
