's Justin Vernon has collaborated with Irish folk band The Chieftains, to reproduce the traditional murder ballad "Down in the Willow Garden." Between the gorgeous acoustics, piercing bagpipes, and Vernon's warm, ethereal voice, this song can't be described in any way other than "painstakingly beautiful." We've fallen in love with Bon Iver all over again. Do yourself a favor and give this a spin over on Pitchfork.

"Down in the Willow Garden" comes from The Chieftain's upcoming [Feb. 21] album, Voices of Ages, which celebrates the band's 50 years together, and also features collaborations with The Decemberists, The Low Anthem, Lisa Hannigan, and more.
