Watch Justin Vernon & Shara Worden In The Studio With The Blind Boys Of Alabama
It might be a while before we hear another Bon Iver album, but that doesn’t mean Justin Vernon is taking a vacation. Repave, the new album from his side project Volcano Choir, is streaming today, and we learned last month that he’s also gotten together with gospel institution the Blind Boys Of Alabama, as well as a bunch of guest indie-luminaries, to make a new album called I’ll Find A Way. We’ve heard their version of Bob Dylan’s “Every Grain Of Sand” with Vernon, and now there’s a short documentary about the album’s recording. Cameras followed the collaborators at Vernon’s April Base studio, and the result isn’t much different from the little featurette on Repave that we recently posted. The video also has appearances from Megafaun’s Phil Cook and My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Worden, both of whom contribute to the record. Check it out below.
I’ll Find A Way is out 10/1 on Sony Masterworks.
