Bon Iver have brought fresh textures to “Short and Sweet”, a track taken from Brittany Howard’s glorious debut record Jaime – released late last year. The tracks are the first to be revealed from an upcoming collection of remixes from Jaime.
“Short and Sweet” is a song celebrating a nascent romance that Howard originally recorded alone, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar – and imbues it with a twinkling, ethereal vibe that both complements and contrasts its old-time warmth.
“Brittany is a truly singular artist; so much power and musicality. This album speaks to so many people, including us,” says Justin Vernon, founder of Bon Iver. “To have a chance to recreate ‘Short and Sweet’ in our own image with long-time collaborators Jenn Wassner and CJ Camerieri, was both an honor and almost too much of a privilege.”
Howard will perform on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Tuesday 29th September. A four-time GRAMMY winner for her work with Alabama Shakes, Howard spoke about women’s equality and finding her voice in the latest episode of “Women Who Rock: Music & Mentorship”. View the interview HERE.
