Bon Iver have announced details of their fourth album which will be called “i,i” (it sounds Scouse to us) and is coming out on August 30th via Jagjaguwar. The band posted on their site: “Recording over a long time at April Base in Wisconsin but finishing at Sonic Ranch in Texas allowed us to feel confident, comfortable, and completely free of distraction. The sense of community around the record grew through honest, generous inspiration within the group of artists involved in the creative process of the record. The thirteen 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.”
You can pre-order the record here. In the meantime, here’s not one but two tracks taken from it, along with the lyrics if you want to singalong (not too sure either will make it to the next version of Singstar mind you).
