Where in the world is Justin Vernon?
This weekend we heard Bon Iver's whispering frontman on Kanye West's leaked album, Yeezus
, alongside Chief Keef on the album's fifth track, "Hold My Liquor". Today, the Wisconsin musician shared the first single off his side project, Volcano Choir's
forthcoming, sophomore album Repave
, due out September 3rd via Jagjaguwar.
Like the photo featured in its stream, "Byegone", is a wave-rolling progression of rich guitar, piano, and percussive peaks. Vernon's vocals, however, don't reach similar heights, but they guide you into an epic, anthemic build that's as mentally cleansing as anything he's previously created. Listen below.
