A series of mysterious events relating to the release of Bon Iver‘s new album are taking place in 11 locations across the world this afternoon (September 29).
The London event is due to begin outside the Rough Trade East record shop on Brick Lane at 4.30pm. Los Angeles, New York City, Berlin, Paris and bandleader Justin Vernon’s hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin are among the other cities participating.
Bon Iver shared times and locations for all 11 events in a series of Instagram posts, but gave away no details of what they actually entail.
Bon Iver launched their new album ’22, A Million’ last night by playing in front of an intimate crowd at Berlin’s Michelberger Hotel.
Bon Iver’s first album since their 2011 self-titled record will be officially released tomorrow (September 30). The album was recorded at April Base Studios in Fall Creek, Wisconsin, as well as in London and Lisbon, while the artwork has been designed by New York-based artist Eric Timothy Carlson. Bandleader Justin Vernon has already played the record live in full, debuting the album’s material at his own Eaux Claires Festival in Wisconsin this summer.
Bon Iver will tour in support of the new LP during October in North America, before hitting the road again in Europe during January and February of next year. UK dates will take place in London, Blackpool and Edinburgh.
