After premiering a new collaboration with Taylor Swift, “exile” only a few weeks ago, Bon Iver returns with brand new single titled “AUTC” alongside a new music visual. The track follows April’s “PDLIF” (or “Please Don’t Live in Fear”), a song that was released in support of health workers battling the coronavirus pandemic.

Justin Vernon debuted “Ate Up All Their Cake” with co-writers Phil Cook, Jim-E Stack, BJ Burton, and Jenn Wasner. Bruce Springsteen is even featured, offering his backing vocals on the song. The effort also comes with a message on combatting the evils of capitalism, systemic racism and women empowerment. Through a statement, the collective highlighted five organizations that support these initiatives, which you can read about below.

Each and every person on earth deserves to live fully with dignity, equity, justice, and joy. Instead, our capitalistic societies have created a world that is most supportive of the wealthy and the elite, and the predatory corporations and policies that drive their disproportionate success.

The average person is cast aside and unheard; marginalized communities are further oppressed due to race, economic status, gender, sexual orientation, creed, criminal record, housing stability, education, ability, documentation status, and more. The pandemic further magnifies these grave inequities and this unchecked greed.

We must continue the fight to topple capitalism as we know it, and recognize our collective participation in its dominant institutions. Bon Iver acknowledges our own position within and use of capitalistic practices. It is with recognition of our privilege that we are fully committed to using our unique platform to challenge and change capitalism within our industry, and far beyond.

We must empower and embrace our vulnerable neighbors. We must fight racism and sexism and classism to build a stronger foundation for the home we all deserve. We must support the leaders and organizations working to change our world for the better. From providing safe and stable housing, to empowering women, to liberating incarcerated people, to celebrating art and music, to fighting climate change, these organizations work tirelessly to foster a world that celebrates our humanity on a local, national, and global level. Please explore, support, and take action:
