Justin Vernon’s latest production project has been for English trio the Staves. It was reported back in December that he was recording their sophomore album, and last week the group released the Blood I Bled EP with some songs from those recording sessions. One of those songs is “Open,” which has gotten another reworking from Vernon himself. He takes the original and runs it through his characteristic vocoder effects and adds some haunting overlapping vocals. Listen below.
The Blood I Bled EP is out now on Atlantic.
