Bon Iver announces new album, ‘i,i’, drops two new music videos

Bon Iver

The album is set for release in August.

Bon Iver has revealed his fourth studio album will be titled i,i (pronounced I comma I). In the lead up to its release, the folk singer-songwriter has dropped not one but two brand new music videos to get philosophical over.

The tracks, ‘Jelmore’ and ‘Faith’, were recorded at Sonic Ranch in West Texas and April Base in Wisconsin. i,i will feature 13 tracks all up, and is meant to act as the autumn-themed closer to the seasonal cycle started by For Emma, Forever Ago (winter), Bon Iver (spring) and 22, A Million (summer).

Fans were treated to previously released singles ‘Hey Ma’ and ‘U (Man Like) back in June. At the start of this month, frontman Justin Vernon also released a curious video teasing the record’s upcoming release.

“[i,i] feels very much like the most adult record, the most complete,” Vernon said in a statement.

“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.”
