Come Talk To Me – Bon Iver

Bon Iver’s version of Come Talk To Me is taken from the album And I’ll Scratch Yours the companion to the critically acclaimed Scratch My Back and the concluding part of a series of song exchanges in which Peter and other leading artists reinterpret each other’s songs.

“I began as a drummer really, but songs became my passion and the craft of songwriting was really what led me into music. I’ve always wanted to do other people’s songs and I’ve done the odd one from time to time but never the dreaded covers album and I thought, if I’m going to do that, I’m going to try and do something a bit different with it… and the idea came, if I could get a song-swap off the ground then it would mean that there would be a dialogue and some relationship with the other writer, so the principle is that if you do one of my songs then I’ll do one of yours… and with some people there’s been no contact and no real discussion and with many of the artists there’s been some dialogue about which song to do and how to do it… but the intention was always that people would do it in their own way.”
