August 30th will see the release of Bon Iver's fourth album, i,i. Following the release of two tracks in June, you can now watch the videos for two new tracks, Jelmore and Faith below.
Recorded at Sonic Ranch in West Texas, and April Base in Wisconsin, Justin Vernon had this to say about the recording process at Sonic Ranch: "It allowed us to feel confident and comfortable, to be completely free of distraction. I don’t think I left the property in six weeks. And in many ways, the story of the album is the story of those six weeks rather than the almost six years of some of the songs."
Vernon also explained the album's title: "The title of the record can mean whatever it means to you or me. It can mean deciphering and bolstering one’s identity. It can be how important the self is and how unimportant the self is, how we’re all connected."
Vernon was joined in the studio by Sean Carey, Andrew Fitzpatrick, Mike Lewis, Matt McCaughan, Rob Moose and Jenn Wasner. With contributions from James Blake, Brad and Phil Cook, Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Bruce Hornsby, Naeem, Velvet Negroni, Channy Leaneagh, Marta Salogni, Francis Starlite, Moses Sumney, TU Dance and more.
