Jun 03, 2019 Bon Iver Bookmark and Share

Bon Iver (the project of Justin Vernon) have shared two new songs, “Hey, Ma” and “U (Man Like),” via videos for each track. They have also announced some new tour dates and launched a new website (, which we had trouble getting to work). The songs feature a slew of special guests, including Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak and Flock of Dimes, Moses Sumney, and Bruce Hornsby. Watch both videos below, followed by the tour dates and cover art for each single.

Vernon had this to say in a press release: “This project began with a single person, but throughout the last 11 years, the identity of Bon Iver has bloomed and can only be defined by the faces in the ever growing family we are.”

The official musician credits on “Hey, Ma” are: Ben Lester - CP-70 Electric Piano. Psymun - Sampling. Justin Vernon - Matrix 6, Guitar. Brian Moen - Drums. Jenn Wasner - Voice, Guitar. Jake Luppen - Guitar. Buddy Ross - Synth. Rob Moose - Violin, Viola, String Arrangement, Worm Crew Arrangement, Conductor. Brad Cook - Basses. Worm Crew - Horns.

The official musician credits on “U (Man Like)” are: “Justin Vernon - Bass + Voice. Bruce Hornsby - Piano, Voice. Phil Cook - Piano and B3, Voice. Elsa Jensen - Voice. Moses Sumney - Voice. Jenn Wasner - Voice. Rob Moose - Violin, Viola, Octave Viola, String Arrangement, Worm Crew Arrangement. Worm Crew - Horns. Brooklyn Youth Chorus + Bryce Dessner - Choral.”

Bon Iver’s last album was 2016’s 22, A Million. Perhaps a new one is on the way in the not too distant future.
