New Release & Video: Bon Iver – Hey Ma / U (Man Like)

Following an almighty headline set at London’s All Points East festival last night, Bon Iver closed the show with the premiere of two new tracks playing out as the band left the stage

Over the rapturous applause, ‘Hey Ma’ and ‘U (Man Like)’ were given their global debut, and you can now hear them for yourselves, below…

These two new songs feature contributions from Bruce Hornsby, Moses Sumney, Jenn Wasner, Elsa Jensen, Psymun, Phil Cook, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and others

Justin Vernon states: “This project began with a single person, but throughout the last 11 years, the identity of Bon Iver has bloomed and can only be defined by the faces in the ever growing family we are”

Off the back of the headline All Points East show in London yesterday, (review coming soon), Bon Iver have also announced a new slate of North American tour dates for September and October, including Barclays Center in Brooklyn, The Forum in Los Angeles, and more detailed below

The larger scale of touring reflects the growing community around the band in both recording and live performance and invites the audience to gather for an exciting new production. To further the growing community, Jenn Wasner, of Wye Oak and Flock of Dimes, will join Justin Vernon, Sean Carey, Matthew McCaughan, Michael Lewis, and Andrew Fitzpatrick to form the Bon Iver live band. Feist, Indigo Girls, Sharon Van Etten, and Yo La Tengo will support select dates…
