‘i,i’ is Bon Iver’s most expansive, joyful and generous album to date. If ‘For
Emma, Forever Ago’ was the crisp, heart-strung isolation of a northern Winter;
‘Bon Iver’ the rise and whirr of burgeoning Spring; and ‘22, A Million’, a blistering,
“crazy energy” Summer record, ‘i,i’ completes the cycle: a fall record; Autumn-
colored, ruminative, steeped. The autumn of Bon Iver is a celebration of self
acceptance and gratitude, bolstered by community and delivering the bounty of
an infinite American music.
The sales and accolades are well-known – multiple Gold albums, multiple
Grammys, chart-topping collaborations and festival headlines. But even more
significantly, with each release Bon Iver quietly shifts the state of modern music.
From the boundaries of folk, to the rules of autotune, to production work for
others, Bon Iver’s fingerprint finds its way across the mainstream every time.
Vernon has always been a master collaborator, and on ‘i,i’ that desire becomes
maximal, with guests ranging from Moses Sumney and Bruce Hornsby to Wye
Oak’s Jenn Wasner and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. Here, the music — and
band, and themes, and creative space — are bigger than ever.
