Watch Justin Vernon Play A New Big Red Machine Song For Two Milwaukee Voters

Justin Vernon’s Eaux Claires festival has been spearheading a Wisconsin get-out-the-vote campaign, in which the Bon Iver leader is inviting residents of his home state to nominate undecided voters for a personal conversation with Vernon. Thus far this initiative has yielded a new Vernon song in tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and in a new video today he plays an unreleased Big Red Machine song.

Big Red Machine is Vernon’s project with the National’s Aaron Dessner. They released a great self-titled debut album in 2018, and Dessner has been working hard on a guest-heavy follow-up that may or may not feature noted Dessner and Vernon collaborator Taylor Swift. In today’s new video, after having a rooftop chat with a young progressive voter and her undecided mother, Vernon plays “Latterdays,” a new Big Red Machine track he and Dessner wrote with Anaïs Mitchell (of Hadestown and Bonny Light Horseman fame).
