Bon Iver – Calgary

May 17, 2011

Ever since For Emma, Forever Ago, we knew that Justin Vernon’s voice was more than just a voice… It was an instrument. He could do things with his voice than many musicians can’t dream of doing. And with this voice, he made a beautiful album. This track is the first single from Vernon’s upcoming self-titled album. It starts rather slow, speeds up and becomes close to anthemic, and then pulls back just in time to end. The decisions about tempo and pace show the growth Vernon has gon through since For Emma, Forever Ago. The album comes out June 21st. Get excited.
