Bon Iver Release New Single AUATC Featuring Jenny Lewis And Bruce Springsteen

Thursday, 06 August 2020 Written by Laura Johnson

Bon Iver have released a new single.

AUATC (At Up All Their Cake) is Justin Vernon and co.'s second track of 2020, following PDLIF (Please Don't Live In Fear) that dropped in April, and boasts vocals by Bruce Springsteen, Jenny Lewis, Elsa Jensen and Jenn Wasner alongside Vernon.

The latter wrote it with Phil Cook, Wasner, Jim-E Stack and BJ Burton, who contributed musically with piano, morphagene, percussion and synthetic strings, respectively. Stack and Burton also co-produced the track with Vernon.

The choral vocals and keys take centre stage as dynamic beats and complementary strings weave in the background of this '70s R&B and soul-influenced song.

In a statement on their Facebook page, the band said:

There’s no master, and help will surely come around.

We’re releasing a brand-new track called “AUATC” on digital services today via Jagjaguwar. We are calling attention to the fight against capitalism and our collective participation in its dominant institutions. Bon Iver acknowledges our own position within and use of capitalistic practices. It is with recognition of our privilege that we are fully committed to using our unique platform to challenge and change capitalism within our industry, and far beyond.

We’re highlighting five organizations working tirelessly to foster a world that celebrates our humanity on a local, national, and global level: Minneapolis Sanctuary Movement, Red Letter Grant, Equal Justice Initiative, NIVA - National Independent Venue Association, and 350.org. Stay tuned for further info and calls to action as we all continue building a better home for everyone.

A huge shout out is due to the incomparable Phil Cook, a key contributor on "AUATC" and a dear friend in music and life for many years. The track also features contributions from talented members of the Bon Iver family including: BJ Burton, Jim-E Stack, Jenn Wasner, Elsa Jensen, Jenny Lewis, Reggie Pace, Matt McCaughan, JT Bates, Ben Lester, Barbara Jean Meyers, and Huntley Miller.

Their summer tour plans in Australia, New Zealand and the US have also been postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The former have been rescheduled to spring 2021, but the new American dates are yet to be announced.
