Here’s the first single from the new self-titled Bon Iver album, Calgary available for streaming and download.
The album was recorded in a remodelled veterinarian clinic in Fall Creek, Wisconsin, which was bought by Justin Vernon and his brother in 2008. It was converted into April Base Studios, built mainly over the defunct swimming pool attached to the clinic. Vernon’s reason for recording in the location was that “it’s been a wonderful freedom, working in a place we built. It’s also only three miles from the house I grew up in, and just ten minutes from the bar where my parents met.”
This album is the much anticipated follow up from For Emma, Forever Ago released in 2008, which contained the track Skinny Love which placed #21 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 and #92 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 of All Time.
