Big Red Machine is a new collaboration between Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon and The National‘s Aaron Dessner. They are releasing their self-titled debut album on August 31 via their PEOPLE digital platform, but also on other streaming services, vinyl, cassette, and CD via Jagjaguwar. They have previously shared four songs (“Forest Green,” “Lyla,” “Gratitude,” and “Hymnostic”), now they have shared two more, “Deep Green” and “I Won’t Run From It.” Listen to both below. The two songs are also included in a new PEOPLE mixtape, which is also below.

Vernon and Dessner produced the album with Brad Cook, and it was recorded and mixed by Jonathan Low at Dessner’s Long Pond studio in Upper Hudson Valley, NY.

Dessner had this to say about the album in a previous press release: “I don’t think the record would exist without the community that came together to make it. We took the music to a certain point, and then we reached out and sent it far and wide, inviting friends to contribute any and all ideas. We’ve viewed the record and the process from a community standpoint. We’re incredibly excited about it, as excited as we would be for any album we might make in another situation that’s more conventional. But this feels like something new-the process felt different and the outcome felt different.”
