Bon Iver reveals new mysterious teaser video

Bon Iver

Justin Vernon’s second full length studio installment has long been awaited, as anticipation grows ever thick in the wake of the release of  “For Emma, Forever Ago“‘s follow-up. Reports have it Bon Iver‘s sophomore yet untitled release will be out this June, although a shroud of mystery is wrapped around the project, fact amplified by a recently unveiled teaser video. The very short 50 seconds video features interesting instrumentals overlapped by Vernon’s unmistakable haunting vocals soundtracking close-ups of a winter landscape painting – something maybe reminiscent of Vernon’s Wisconsin inspiration. Check out the teaser video below.

Although a track listing was unreleased, Vernon did say that each song on the new album represents a place. The song “Perth” was described as a “Civil War-sounding heavy metal song,” the song “Minnesota Wisconsin” was described as featuring “finger-picked guitars, double bass drums and distorted bass saxophone,” and the closing song “Beth/Rest” will be “horn heavy.”
