During one of Bernie Sanders’ virtual town halls about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic Saturday, Justin Vernon performed a new song from  Bon Iver titled “Things Behind Things Behind Things.” Vernon also performed a variety of other songs from his home, including “Towers” and “Blood Bank,” similarly covering Bob Dylan’s “With God on Our Side.”

Singing the song over a laidback electric guitar, Vernon sings “I don’t like the way it’s looking/I can’t go through the motions/How am I supposed to do this now/I am afraid, of changing/The way I look back makes me a competitor/There are things behind things behind things.”

Earlier this year, Justin Vernon performed for Sanders at a rally in Clive, Iowa. Bon Iver’s Blood Bank EP from 2009 was most recently reissued for its 10th anniversary, with followed the band’s critically-acclaimed fourth LP, i,i, last year.
