Bon Iver perform a raw edition of ‘Babys’ for a Take Away Show in Berlin
In fall of 2016, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and The National’s Aaron Dessner staged their nameless collaborative gathering of 81 artists showcasing their new work at Berlin’s Funkhaus venue. During the rehearsal process, another musical treat was filmed that is now available for all to see.
Vernon recruited one of his oldest colleagues, Sean Carey, to perform a unique show that would see the two talents covering Bon Iver’s classic, “Babys.” Though the two musicians somewhat broke the show’s tradition in that they had a live audience, they kept to the primary pillars of putting forth a raw, unrefined show by playing only using their voices and their pianos. The result is a precise, and haunting version of “Babys” which showcases their artistic excellence. Watch the full video above.
