离经典的For Emma, Forever Ago有一段时间了。Four years after Bon Iver emerged from Wisconsin cabin with one of the 2000s’ most celebrated records, the forlorn folkie has announced his second album. Featuring pedal-steel, saxophone and a children’s choir. For new album, Vernon brought in sidemen such as pedal-steel guitarist Greg Leisz, and sax virtuoso Colin Stetson, who has backed Arcade Fire, Beirut and Tom Waits. Bon Iver’s new album will have 10 tracks, each inspired by a different place. Perth, named after the Australian city, is a “Civil War-sounding heavy metal song” with martial drums, choir and “wailing guitars”. Minnesota Wisconsin lays Stetson’s bass saxophone over Vernon’s finger-picked guitar, and the album closer, Beth/Rest, is “definitely the part where you pick up your joint and relight it”.
