Fall Creek Boys Choir - James Blake & Bon Iver - Fall Creek Boys Choir (2011)
After he alluded to a collaboration earlier this week, James Blake helped premiere his collab-via-email with Bon Iver (or more specifically, Justin Vernon) on BBC1 last night. Officially released next week, Fall Creek Boys Choir is a spacious production; with James Blake providing his trademark watery keyboards and post-dubstep crackles and pops (with dog bark), while Vernon’s multi-layered vocals float and soar above.
According to James Blake, Fall Creek Boys Choir is just one of many that the pair have worked on, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see if any more get released. Also, underneath the official YouTube recording, Blake posted “Enough Thunder - Oct 2011”, of which one would only assume to mean his next release is titled Enough Thunder and is coming out this October. However, in the meantime you can check out his recently released, deliciously stripped-back single Panhere.
