Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon has said he might not release another album for five years.

In an interview with USA Today, the singer revealed that he had not yet started work on the follow-up to the band's self-titled second studio album, which was released in June last year, and said it could take as long as half-a-decade to put out his next LP.

He said:

I don't have any songs written yet. I'm guessing three years. But it could be five. It could be only one more. It just depends when the songs come about. I sort of have to wait till they reveal themselves.

However, Vernon did say that he was planning on working on other projects away from Bon Iver, including records with his other groups Shouting Matches and Volcano Choir, and was also collaborating with Alicia Keys. "I have a big idea to do an American songbook of the greatest women singers," he added. "There are so many: Casey (Dienel) from White Hinterland, Bonnie Raitt, Alicia."

Earlier this month, the frontman announced that he had launched his own record label, called Chigliak Records, which will release 'lost' albums and new music.

Last December, meanwhile, it was reported that Bon Iver were set to appear in a new workout DVD called On The Road. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch the trailer.
