Amber Bain aka The Japanese House has released her new EP ‘Chewing Cotton Wool’ which includes ‘Dionne’ featuring Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.
This is the first new music from Bain after she released her debut album last year ‘Good At Falling’ and the single ‘Something Has To Change’ later in the year.
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Bain said this about the collaboration.
“It’s kind of crazy because I’m obviously a massive, massive fan of his music, I have been since he released that first album. I think there’s certain moments in your career where you have to part of how magic it is, is you have to say to yourself imagine telling yourself that this is going to happen 10 years ago, I wouldn’t be able to believe it. Almost, I can’t wait for my friends from school that he was friends with, we loved Bon Iver to hear this song. It’s just madness. It’s really nice to still have that feeling of being amazed and feel there’s something really special and magical. I guess there are certain things when you’ve been a musician and you can play a big venue and then the next time you play a big venue doesn’t feel the same. But with this, it’s just I still feel like a teenage girl, just like myself.”
This is the second feature that Justin Vernon has appeared on this year following on from ‘Exile’ from Taylor Swift’s surprise album ‘Folklore’. This also saw the first time Bon Iver appeared on a song in the Billboard top 20.
Bon Iver also released new single ‘AUATC’ which you can read about here.
