Justin Vernon Writes For A Twenty-Five-Voice Choir
Listen to “From The Snow Tipped Hills”, his contribution to The Silver Lake Chorus’ repertoire
The Silver Lake Chorus is a young Los Angeles vocal group who specialise in adapting indie songs to the choral register. For their first album, which is being produced by Australian Ben Lee, they have decided to go a step further, requesting original songs, written for the occasion, from such acclaimed artists as Beck, of Montreal, Jon Brion, Aimee Mann, Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers and Justin Vernon from Bon Iver, among others. As an advance from this album, on the 18th of September “Wreckage EP” will be out, an aperitif that will include this glorious “From The Snow Tipped Hills” written by Vernon.
