Contemporary dance may not be the first thing one thinks of when it comes to the soft indie music of Justin Vernon, better known as Bon Iver, but that's exactly where the musician debuted new music.

Bon Iver performed alongside Minnesota dance company TU Dance over the weekend at MASS MoCa, giving fans a preview of what they can expect to hear from his still in-progress score. Snippets of the performance that have made their way onto YouTube feature a driving drum beat and Vernon's recognizable vocals, as well as a cover of Leon Russell's "A Song for You." The work's official premiere is slated for April 19 in Saint Paul, Minnesota, at the Liquid Music Festival.

"I feel so inspired in collaborating with [TU Dance’s choreographer] Uri [Sands] on new work,' Vernon previously said of the project. "I know that the experience will be both positively challenging and extremely rewarding for all involved."

Vernon also previously debuted one of the songs on a Virginia tour stop.

Be sure to catch Bon Iver live later this year, with tickets on sale right here on AXS. He'll also hit the summer festival circuit with appearances at Mo Pop and Bonnaroo, where he will play two different sets.
