A previously unreleased Bon Iver record has made its way to the world. The Grammy-winning band's track, “Haven, Mass,” reached the hands of unsuspecting early ticket buyers for the second annual Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival when festival organizers sent cassette tapes hinting as to who might be performing. Bon Iver singer Justin Vernon took to Twitter to confirm that “Haven, Mass” is a “very old song” from 2009 or 2010.
Thanks to the internet, the tape featuring the Bon Iver track is now online for everyone to hear. While you can hear “Haven, Mass” at 30:25 on Side B, you can also check out a song from Vernon's collaboration with James Blake called Fall Creek Boys Choir as well as songs he did with the Dessner brothers from the National. Definitely take this as a heavy hint of who will be performing at Eaux Claires this August and listen to both sides of the mixtape below.
