Stream: Bon Iver exclusive interview with Zan Rowe

Bon Iver and Zan RoweLast week we announced the release of Bon Iver‘s long-awaited second album. Triple J’s Zan Rowe was lucky enough to catch up with Justin Vernon last month in Texas. In an exclusive interview, Vernon talks about the band’s new self-titled album.

It has been three years since the acclaimed ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’ and during that time Bon Iver have been a busy band. In addition to working on the new album, there have been collaborations with Gayngs, Lia Ices, Volcano Choir and of course that track with Kanye West.

The band has also been touring relentlessly, which would explain why a lot of the track titles on ‘Bon Iver’ are place names. In his interview with Zan Rowe, Vernon explains the origins of the opening track, “Perth” and the special place he has in his heart for Australia. The entire interview will be online closer to the album’s release in June.

‘Bon Iver’  is out 17th June on Jagjaguwar through Inertia
