You know what’s weird? Bon Iver announcing a new album at nearly 11 o’clock on a Friday night. You know what’s weirder? Most of the song titles on said album.
Justin Vernon has just premiered 22, A Million the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to 2011’s instant-classic Bon Iver, Bon Iver on stage at Eaux Claires Music Festival in Wisconsin. A traditional release will follow on September 30, and you can pre-order the record now through the band’s webstore. The album features wicked-looking artwork featuring all kinds of spooky symbols, but if that’s not scary enough for you, you definitely need to check out some of these track titles. “21 M♢♢N WATER,” “10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⊠ ⊠” and “22(OVER S∞∞N)” are the names of real Bon Iver songs now, folks. Welcome to 2016.
Check out all of the vital information below. Additionally, it appears that alternate and extended versions of the album songs are currently releasing on the band’s verified Twitter page. Listen to some of the new songs below (they’re weird!), and keep an eye out for more new music as the night continues.
