Judging from the firsttwo singles, Bon Iver’s upcoming album eschews acoustic instruments and lo-fi recordings for digital experiments. But they’re no less melancholic and memorable. The album drops 9/30/16; vinyl and CD copies come with digital download codes.
Bon Iver recorded Haven, Mass. for their second album but it didn’t make the cut. The song was then unceremoniously released in a mixtape sent to early bird ticket buyers of the 2016 Eaux Claires Music Fest, which Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon co-organized.
“There’s something sacred going on, and I can understand it.”Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon talks about his love for his hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and how it shapes him and his music. A nice interview by Red Wing Shoes.
