Collaboration between Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and The National’s Aaron Dessner. Other collaborators include Phoebe Bridgers, Lisa Hannigan, Richard Reed Parry. In 2008, Aaron Dessner sent Justin Vernon an instrumental sketch of a song called Big Red Machine for Dark Was The Night. Justin wrote a song to it, interpreting the Big Red Machine title as a heart. 10 years of friendship later, there are 10 more songs. Each song includes a large number of collaborators via the People platform a growing group of international artists who have come together to create and share work freely, with each other and everyone.
