NEWS: Details of of Bon Iver’s new self-titled album…

For Emma, Forever Ago was a brilliant moment both musically and by the nature of its word of mouth evolution from a low key, introspective folk album to one that soundtracked bookstores and worldwide media acclaim. Justin Vernon followed it up with the Blood Bank EP featuring the mesmerising title track and some hints of where he might head with more contemporary sounds and a cleaner palette. Vernon cast his musical net wide since then with collaborative work with Gayngs, Volcano Choir a contribution to Lia Ices’ album and a tribute to the music of John Prine.

Now we have the news that the new self-titled Bon Iver record will be released on June 21st via Jagjaguwar.

According to the press release…

Bon Iver, Bon Iver was recorded and mixed at April Base Studios, a remodeled veterinarian’s clinic located in rural Fall Creek, Wisconsin. The main recording space is constructed over a defunct indoor pool attached to the clinic. “It’s an unique space and destination; it’s our home out here,” says Vernon, who purchased the structure with his brother in late 2008 with the sole intention of converting it into his ideal recording studio. “It’s been a wonderful freedom, working in a place we built. It’s also only three miles from the house I grew up in, and just ten minutes from the bar where my parents met.” The creation of Bon Iver, Bon Iver was a three-year process, and Vernon says the completion of the studio paralleled the completion of the album. “I was writing and recording in the windows of time snatched between tours in support of For Emma,” he says. “When I finally came home to hunker down for a solid stretch there was a feeling of solid ground and an opportunity for liberation waiting in the space for me.”
