The Ghost of Cincinnati by Big Red Machine Mp3 Download
American indie folk band, Big Red Machine have shared a new song from their How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last? album.
The band which began as a collaboration between musicians Aaron Dessner and Justin Vernon is set to release the album on August 27.
Aaron Dessner sings the vocals for “The Ghost of Cincinnati,” which has orchestration from his twin brother Bryce. The song was mixed by Jonathan Low, who shared the 2021 Grammy Award for Album of the Year with Aaron Dessner and Taylor Swift for his work on folklore.
Guests on the forthcoming album include Taylor Swift, Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold, Sharon Van Etten, and, on lead track “Latter Days,” Anaïs Mitchell. Big Red Machine’s self-titled debut came out in 2018.
Big Red Machine began as a musical collaboration in 2008, when Aaron Dessner messaged Justin Vernon on MySpace, without any prior personal meeting. Dessner sent Vernon an instrumental idea for a compilation album named Dark Was the Night, benefiting the Red Hot Organization, which he wanted Vernon to write a song for.
The sketch was titled “Big Red Machine”, and Vernon created a completed song using the track. The album was celebrated with a show at Radio City Music Hall, where the two met and began further collaborating. Since then, they have worked on a number of projects together, including PEOPLE Collective, Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival, and Day of the Dead.
Dessner is most famous for being a founding member, songwriter, and producer for The National, and Vernon for being the leader of Bon Iver.
