Bon Iver have detailed their new album 22, A Million, the band's first LP in five years. The announcement comes as Justin Vernon and company debuted their new work during the band's headlining set Friday night at Vernon's own Eaux Claires Festival in Wisconsin.
22, A Million is due out September 30th on Jagjagwuar. In addition to revealing the album's 10-song leetspeak-inspired track list and "symbol-rich" album art by Eric Timothy Carlson, Bon Iver also shared a pair of 22, A Million tracks: The lyric video for the "Bob Moose Extended Cab Version" version of "22 (OVER S∞∞N)" and the video for the extended version of "10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⚄ ⚄," featuring more of Carlson's artwork.
"22, A Million is part love letter, part final resting place of two decades of searching for self-understanding like a religion. And the inner-resolution of maybe never finding that understanding," the band said in a statement. "The album’s 10 poly-fi recordings are a collection of sacred moments, love’s torment and salvation, contexts of intense memories, signs that you can pin meaning onto or disregard as coincidence. If Bon Iver, Bon Iver built a habitat rooted in physical spaces, then 22, A Million is the letting go of that attachment to a place."
The album was largely recorded at Vernon's April Base Studios in Fall Creek, Wisconsin as well as studios in London and Lisbon alongside a group of collaborators.
22, A Million is available to preorder now in a variety of deluxe formats.
