Justin Vernon James Blake

Five years ago, James Blake and Justin Vernon teamed up for “Fall Creek Boys Choir”. Now, the two crooners appear set to reunite, and this time they’re bringing their collaboration to the live stage.

Fans who purchased early-bird tickets to Vernon’s second annual Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival have received a cassette tape containing b-sides, demos, and home recordings from some of the acts on this year’s lineup. One such track is attributed to Fall Creek Boys Choir.

Eaux Claires takes place August 12th – 13th in Vernon’s hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The cassette tapes suggests Vernon will play three separate sets during the festival weekend; in addition to Fall Creek Boys Choir, he’ll lead Bon Iver and perform alongside The National’s Aaron Dessner.

Other artists expected to appear at the festival: Bruce Hornsby, Jon Hopkins, Shabazz Palaces, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, and Arcade Fire members Richard Reed Parry and Sarah Neufeld, the latter of who’ll perform alongside Colin Stetson.

Update – Saturday, February 6th at 5:00 p.m. CT: Eaux Claires organizers have confirmed the veracity of the cassette’s tracklist to Pitchfork.

An official lineup announcement is slated for February 11th.
