Bon Iver to Release New Album This Year
Vernon decided to work with studio musicians--sax man
Colin Stetson (Tom Waits, Arcade Fire) and pedal-steel
guitarist Greg Leisz (Bill Frissell, Linda
Rondstadt)--to change the way his songs came out. "I built the record myself, but I allowed those people to
come in and change the scene," he said.
The result? A set of 10 songs, each one representing a place. There's a song about Perth, one called "Minnesota Wisconsin." Gotta love a man who never forgets his roots.
