Bonny Light Horseman, the collaborative project of Anaïs Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson, and Josh Kaufman, have teamed up with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver on their new single "Bright Morning Stars".

"Bright Morning Stars" is the fifth single to be shared from Bonny Light Horseman, after "The Roving", "Jane Jane", "Deep In Love", and "Bonny Light Horseman".

For their new single, Mitchell, Johnson and Kaufman recruited Justin Vernon of Bon Iver to lay down some vocal harmonies.

Vernon says of the collaborative project, "This is rare. This is unprecedented. This group of musicians is like no other. What they said they set out to do and what they did are so WILDLY in line that it creates resonating chambers larger than the sum of their parts. I am beside myself, shaking my head when I hear this music."

Their forthcoming self-titled debut album is produced by Josh Kaufman, and sees the trio reinterpret traditional songs as well as sharing new ones.

"Bright Morning Stars" is out now. Bonny Light Horseman's self-titled debut album lands Friday (24 January) via 37d03d Records, and is available to pre-order now.
