Taylor Swift Shouts Out Bon Iver, Applauds Big Red Machine’s ‘Stunning & Important’ Song ‘Latterdays’

Justin Vernon delivered a powerful new Big Red Machine song while encouraging voting in his home state of Wisconsin.

In the latest installment of his “Visit With Vernon” campaign, the Bon Iver star introduced (safely and six feet apart) the song called “Latterdays” to a voter in the swing state. The series is a part of the “For Wisconsin” voting initiative by Vernon and Aaron Dessner’s Eaux Claires Festival.

“One of the ways I communicate is with music,” he explains in the clip. “I wanted to play you this song. A friend of mine named Anaïs Mitchell, she wrote all these words. I thought I would play it for you, if that’s cool? So, it’s called ‘Latterdays.’ To me, I think about what it’s going to feel like in the future when we look back and we wonder if we did enough.”

The song, fitting for this tumultuous year, features the lyrics: “You and your clever mouth/ You were laughing when the lights went out/ I recall it all forever / How it found us where we lay / With our arms around each other / In the latterdays.”

Taylor Swift beamed with pride for her “exile” collaborator, retweeting the video and writing, “Stunning and important. So much love and respect for @boniver.”

Earlier this month, Swift officially endorsed Joe Biden for the upcoming presidential election. “The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of color deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be acknowledged and included,” Swift told V Magazine. “Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first. The only way we can begin to make things better is to choose leaders who are willing to face these issues and find ways to work through them.”
