Jagjaguwar has posted the official lyric sheet to Bon Iver‘s upcoming album Bon Iver, Bon Iver. The highly-anticipated follow up to 2007’s For Emma, Forever Ago is set to be released on June 21 in the US via Jagjaguwar and on June 20 in the UK and Europe via 4AD. Unsurprisingly, the lyrics are chock full of Justin Vernon’s signature undecipherable lyrics. Our favorite lines?
Here are some early contenders:
- armour let it through, borne the arboretic truth you kept posing
sat down in the suit, fixed on up it wasn’t you by finished closing
- settle past a patience where wishes and your will are spilling pictures
- …and at once I knew I was not magnificent
- I… we’re sewing up through the latchet greens
I… un-peel keenness, honey, bean for bean
same white pillar tone as with the bone street sand is thrown where she stashed us at
all been living alone, where the cracks at in the low part of the stoning
- errant heat to the star
and the rain let in
the hawser rolls, the vessel’s whole and Christ, it’s thin
As for an explanation behind the album title? No official word from Vernon yet, but due to the number of location-based songs on the tracklist, Bon Iver, Bon Iver may be a play on words along the lines of “Minnesota, WI”, “Hinnom, TX” and “Lisbon, OH”.
