Listen: James Blake and Bon Iver cover “The Sound of Silence”

The 1964 folk tune was reimagined on BBC radio

James Blake and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon gave Simon and Garfunkel’s classic folk tune a new twist, performing a cover on BBC Radio on Oct. 8.

The pair, who previously collaborated in 2011, closed the Radio 1 Residency Show with the song, which Blake dedicated to a friend who had recently passed away.

Simon and Garfunkel originally recorded “The Sound of Silence” in 1964, and it appeared on their debut album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.
