Kathleen Edwards – “Wapusk” (Feat. Bon Iver)

Last year, the singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards wrote her song “Wapusk” in the Manitoba polar-bear domain that gave the song its name, as she writes on her website. Edwards’s boyfriend, Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon, produced the song and sang minimal backing vocals on it, and it’ll appear on a new 7″ alongside another Vernon production called “Change The Sheets.” That single is out 9/27 on Zöe/Rounder.
