Four months after sharing the Kacy Hill–featuring acronymic single “PDLIF,” Bon Iver is back with reinforcements for their second track of 2020: “AUATC” (which stands for “Ate up all their cake”) arrived  with vocal contributions from Jenny Lewis and Jenn Wasner (who’s had a busy month between a new Wye Oak EP and her work on the new Madeline Kenney LP) with production credits for the band’s Justin Vernon as well as Jim E-Stacks and BJ Burton.

In lieu of the glitchy folktronica of its predecessor, “AUATC” recalls the roots rock of The Band, complete with a jaunty piano lining the chorus of voices (Bruce Springsteen also gets a vocals credit here). Hear the song below, and watch the video which features graceful moves from Randall Riley.

From celebrating art and music, to empowering women, to liberating incarcerated people, to fighting climate change, these organizations work tirelessly to foster a world that celebrates our humanity on a local, national, and global level. Please explore, support, and take action:
