Listen to a never before heard Bon Iver track called “Haven, Mass”

Unreleased demo was unearthed to tease forthcoming Eaux Claires Music Festival lineup


To tease the lineup for this year’s Eaux Claires Music Festival, Justin Vernon sent out a cassette tape featuring b-sides, demos, and other rarities from some of the artists who are playing. As his own Bon Iver will be making a return visit to the festival, Vernon unearthed a never before heard track called “Haven, Mass”. It apparently dates back a half decade, but is still a fascinating listen nonetheless.

Along with Bon Iver, this year’s Eaux Claires will feature three other Vernon-featuring sets, including a collaborative performances with James Blake. The full lineup will be officially announced on Thursday.

Update – Tuesday, March 9th at 4:15 p.m. CT: The full cassette tape has been uploaded to SoundCloud. The tracklist also includes Fall Creek Boys Choir (Vernon’s collaboration with James Blake), Shabazz Palaces, Colin Stetson with Sarah Neufeld, Jon Hopkins, My Brightest Diamond, The National’s Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner, and many more. Listen below.
