New Video From Bon Iver Offers Stripped-Down Versions Of Five Songs

Bon Iver has posted a new video on the band's YouTube page featuring frontman Justin Vernon and drummer Sean Carey performing five of the group's songs on dueling grand pianos. The video was shot at the stunning AIR Studio's Lyndhurst Hall in London and shows Vernon and Carey facing each other on opposing pianos as they work through stripped-bare versions of "Hinnom, TX," "Wash.," and "Beth/Rest" from Bon Iver, "Babys" from the Blood Bank EP, and the single "I Can't Make You Love Me."
