"Skinny Love" is a song by American indie folk band Bon Iver.
"Skinny Love" was the first single released from Bon Iver's 2007 début album For Emma, Forever Ago
in America. The song was released as a single in the United Kingdom
on 28 April 2008. While "Skinny Love" has been considered a reference to his relationship with former girlfriend Christy Smith, Vernon countered this as "not entirely accurate [...] it's about that time in a relationship that I was going through; you're in a relationship because you need help, but that's not necessarily why you should be in a relationship. And that's skinny."
