Listen: Justin Vernon, Aaron Dessner share new single as Big Red Machine ‘The Ghost of Cincinnati’

Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner have shared a new single as Big Red Machine, “The Ghost of Cincinnati.”

The track comes from the Bon Iver and The National offshoot’s forthcoming album, How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last?, which was just announced yesterday. Their sophomore record is set to boast collaborations with Taylor Swift, Fleet Foxes, Sharon Van Etten, Ben Howard, and more.

“The Ghost of Cincinnati” follows the release of their Anaïs Mitchell collaboration, “Latter Days.” This new tune is far more stripped-down than yesterday’s track. Bringing Dessner’s vocal to the lead, the emotive new tune is definitely a must-listen for folk fans. The track also credits orchestration to Aaron’s twin brother, Bryce Dessner.

Listen to “The Ghost of Cincinnati” below.

How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last? is out on August 27th via 37d03d, and you can pre-order the album here.

Yesterday’s track with Mitchell (of Bonny Light Horseman) marks the opener to the album. Revolving around a sparse, melancholic instrumental line, the track is sure to get you in your feelings. With soft whistles and heart-wrenching harmonies, this intimate tune is a perfect preview of the album.
