BON IVER TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ON SEPTEMBER 30
Bon Iver, the musical project led by Justin Vernon, will release its third studio album entitled 22, A Million, September 30th on Jagjaguwar. The band performed the album in full on Friday night at the second annual Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival, in Vernon’s hometown Eau Claire, WI. Extended versions of the album’s two opening tracks, 22 (OVER S∞∞N) and 10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⚄ ⚄ are both available now via download and streaming services, and accompanying lyric videos are currently on video streaming platforms such as YouTube. A 12” vinyl release of the 22/10 extended versions is available with pre-orders of the new album and in select record stores worldwide on September 30th.
22, A Million is part love letter, part final resting place of two decades of searching for self-understanding like a religion; and the inner-resolution of maybe never finding that understanding. The album’s 10 poly-fi recordings are a collection of sacred moments, love’s torment and salvation, contexts of intense memories, signs that you can pin meaning onto or disregard as coincidence. If Bon Iver, Bon Iver built a habitat rooted in physical spaces, then 22, A Million is the letting go of that attachment to a place.
Pre-order 22, A Million HERE.
Bon Iver has announced a number of select shows this Fall, including a two-day, not-for-profit music event at Berlin’s Funkhaus studios on October 1st & 2nd in collaboration with Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National, The Michelberger Hotel and others, a concert at The Hollywood Bowl on October 23rd with Patti Smith and Hiss Golden Messenger, and more headline shows on the West Coast.
