James Blake returned to his BBC Radio 1 residency for a special show with fellow musician Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. They chatted about a number of things including bringing Blake's label crew at 1-800-Dinosaur to Eaux Claires, Vernon's hometown music festival. Listeners were also graced with a Bob Dylan impersonation by Vernon, that was pretty spot on. In closing out the show, Blake shared a special song that he dedicated to a friend who passed away on New Year's Eve. That song was Blake's brilliant cover of Simon & Garfunkel's 'The Sound of Silence', which you can listen to below.
