Anticipated third LP from the Wisconsin indie folk gang is here! This is Bon Iver's first full length since 2011's Grammy-winning Bon Iver, Bon Iver and finds Justin Vernon & Co. taking an unexpected left turn toward the experimental, all the while retaining that intimacy and honesty they are known for. It is at the same time their most difficult work and most progressive, as Bon Iver face uncertainty head-on with arranged glitches, distortion and unpredictable (YEEZY-esque) vocal processing. Sure to be divisive to fans of their early work, but exceedingly rewarding to those who can embrace the chance. The band actually premiered the entire album at the Eaux Claires Music Festival to much fanfare, and we are extremely stoked to finally have it in the flesh. Ten tracks in all including "33 GOD," "22(Over S∞∞n)," "666," "715 CREEKS," and more. Comes in gatefold sleeve with printed lyric booklet, digital download included. Expect the unexpected.
