Bon Iver Releases New Album “i,i”: Streaming
- American indie folk band Bon Iver released their fourth studio album “i,i” on August 9th. It is their first LP in three years.
On August 8th, 2019 starting at 6:00 am EST the band started to release the previously un-released tracks of the album one at a time, every hour on the hour until 11:00 am EST.
The band recorded the album at Sonic Ranch in West Texas and April Base in Wisconsin. The album features Rob Moose and Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner. Other i,i collaborators include James Blake, Moses Sumney, Bruce Hornsby, Francis Starlite, Brad and Phil Cook, Aaron and Bryce Dessner, POLIÇA’s Channy Leaneagh, Wheezy, Naeem Juwan (aka Spank Rock), and BJ Burton.
The band founder Justin Vernon said in a statement, “feels very much like the most adult record, the most complete.” He continued, “It feels like when you get through all this life, when the sun starts to set, and what happens is you start gaining perspective. And then you can put that perspective into more honest, generous work.”
He added, “The 13 new songs on i,i complete a cycle: from the winter of For Emma, Forever Ago came the frenetic spring of Bon Iver, Bon Iver, and the unhinged summer of 22, A Million. Now, fall arrives early with i,i.”
