Last night I had the pleasure of watching Bon Iver close out the inaugural Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival. During the set, the band performed not one but two new songs, which you can watch fan-shot video of in the replies. There was no formal confirmation from Justin Vernon regarding an upcoming album, however.

Justin Vernon speaks with Grantland about Bon Iver and the future.
"As far as putting a record together, I don’t really know what’s happening," he said. "Our show is our main focus. We don’t have anything booked after this. We don’t have any plans. We’re not being secretive — we just don’t have any plans. It’s just about, Play the show and put all of our energy into one show — for once in my life, let’s just play one fucking show and care just about this one show for a goddamn change."

Bon Iver have announced they're ending their self-imposed hiatus.
“It’s the perfect platform for us to be like this is how we’re starting this new cycle, this new life of the band. It makes so much sense to start it here, right where it all started” Vernon explained to Minneapolis’ KARE 11.

According to Entertainment Weekly, not only is the new Zach Braff helmed movie, Wish I Was Here, good, but it also features new music from Bon Iver and The Shins' frontman James Mercer.
“In this case, it was unique because we sent [music supervisor] Mary Ramos to Wisconsin to show the movie to Bon Iver, and they wrote a song pretty much on the spot,” Braff said. “She sat there in Wisconsin while they wrote a song.”

ReviewsVolcano Choir - Repave (Ryan Dennehy)
Ryan Dennehy on 09/03/13 - 09:19 PM
Don't expect Justin Vernon to write another Bon Iver record anytime soon. He recently told TripleJ that he doesn't "really write songs anymore." Vernon's other project, Volcano Choir, released its new album, Repave, today.
"I don't really write songs anymore," he said. "The last Bon Iver record was a very 'sitting down with a guitar and writing' kind of record. I really have to be in a specific headspace to even begin to illuminate an idea that would create another Bon Iver record, and I'm just not there. I'm really honoured that Bon Iver gives me a platform to do whatever I want, but there's only so much time you can spend digging through yourself before you become insular. I'm not in...

Both of Bon Iver's albums, For Emma, Forever Ago and Bon Iver, Bon Iver have gone gold. What's interesting is that the albums, released two and a half years apart, crossed the 500,000 mark at basically the same time.

Bon Iver may be taking a extended break in the future.
Justin VernonWinding it down. I look at it like a faucet. I have to turn it off and walk away from it because so much of how that music comes together is subconscious or discovering. There’s so much attention on the band, it can be distracting at times. I really feel the need to walk away from it while I still care about it. And then if I come back to it – if at all – I'll feel better about it and be renewed or something to do that.
