In 2008, The National's Aaron Dessner sent Bon Iver's Justin Vernon an instrumental sketch of a song called "Big Red Machine". This was before they had met in person. Justin wrote a song to it, interpreting the Big Red Machine title as a heart. 10 years of friendship later and their band, Big Red Machine, was born. Each song on their album includes a large number of collaborators via the PEOPLE platform and the record was produced by Justin and Aaron with longtime collaborator Brad Cook primarily at Aaron's studio, Long Pond, in Upper Hudson Valley, NY. Check out the song, Gratitude!
