Justin Vernon returns later this year with his Bon Iver moniker and the self-titled follow-up to the outstanding 2007/2008 debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago. That’s the impressive and immersive artwork above. But what’s really got me really enthused about this album is the 51 second preview that Vernon has released. A subtle and enticing build-up that shows some development from the log cabin acoustics of the last album. I’d do a lot right now to hear the next part after that ominous drumbeat comes in. Watch the video below and get ready for the album to drop on the 21st June.
