Instead of performing “Calgary” on Jimmy Fallon last night, Bon Iver offered a modified version of that Bon Iver single’s B-Side, the remake of Bonnie Raitt’s 1991 smash “I Can’t Make You Love Me” complete with a taste of 1989 via a “Nick Of Time” coda. Switching things up a bit for Late Night, he started it off with a swatch of Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You.” As the above photo suggests, it was pretty smooth:

Vernon also sat down with Fallon and discussed the new album, the old album, his voice, etc.
