Bon Iver have shared a new track called “PDLIF” (“Please Don’t Live in Fear”) to provide support to frontline healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Proceeds from the song will go toward Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization that delivers “personal protective equipment to responders across the US and the world.”
The new track, which was made in isolation, opens with Bon Iver’s quintessential, almost distorted orchestral introduction before leading into gritty vocal lines. The song is sure to bring hope in this trying time, as frontman Justin Vernon sings lines like, “Please don’t live in fear/ We can’t see from here right now/ Send it off from here/ And free your mind.”
