Bon Iver, ‘Calgary’ – Free MP3 Download

Four years have passed since ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’. The album’s mix of thin skin honesty, Justin Vernon’s moonlit vocals, the back of the barn-atmospherics and the Walden like story behind the making of it made it a modern classic.

In the intervening years we’ve had the ‘Blood Bank’ EP, Gayngs, S.Carey and ’My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’.

Bon Iver

Now the band are set to release the self-titled ‘Bon Iver’ on July 4, and in anticipation have made the first single ‘Calgary’ available for download.

The song starts up solo with a dusky keyboard having replaced the familiar autumnal twang of the acoustic. As the band comes in and the song builds from the bottom up, things take a turn for the Sitek, a little bit jazzy even. It’s different and yet totally Bon Iver.
