With an anticipated release date of much later this month, Bon Iver fans were eager to have new music in their hands. And now, instead of the original due date, Bon Iver has shared their latest album, i,i, today.
Releasing one track an hour, on the hour, the latest album from Bon Iver is filled with some notable collaborators, including Bruce Hornsby, Sean Carey, and James Blake. Justin Vernon, the creator behind the band, has paired with artists around the world who have also helped to create the visuals behind the album.
The community around Bon Iver has continued to grow over the past decade. We couldn't be more honored to formally introduce you to the remarkably talented artists / humans that made the album come to life. Follow #icommai for more. @jagjaguwar 📸 @3TC3T3RA Graham Tolbert pic.twitter.com/5qhNe3ZBCn

In addition to the album release, the band shared detailed plans of their arena tour set up later this year, which includes an artist installation and detailed acoustics, which will help sound travel well throughout the space.
Across the board, i,i is easily the most comprehensive body of work that Vernon has created, with a tracks that build into each other, without overly sounding the same. With a steady mix of up tempo tracks similar to 22, A Million and tracks that could fit with For Emma, Forever Ago, i,i is the perfect next step for Vernon and bandmates.
