Big Red Machine, the joint venture between Aaron Dessner of National and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, stopped on the episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night. They played their recently released song “Phoenix” while on the air and shared a performance of another new song called “New Auburn”. Anaïs Mitchell and Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold joined the band for both of them, check out everything below.
