Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver project released their massively successful self-titled album last year, and has been on tour ever since. But we might not be hearing much from Bon Iver for awhile in the future…
Last night, Vernon appeared on Minnesota Public Radio station 89.3 The Current’s Local Show, as City Pages points out (via the Daily Swarm). When questioned about what Bon Iver’s “up to these days,” here’s what he said:
Winding 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.
In the meantime, Bon Iver’s performance at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall on September 21 is now streaming live on YouTube. Watch it below– it’s only available for the next two days:
