It’s been a year of side projects for Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. He released an album with his blues-rock band The Shouting Matches, appeared on Colin Stetson’s new album, and now he’s announced plans for a new album with his experimental pop outfit Volcano Choir.
Repave is the follow-up to the band’s 2009 debut, Unmap, and will be released on September 3rd via Jagjaguwar. The album’s eight songs were written between November 2010 and March 2013.
The album cover (pictured above) is a painting by Corey Arnold entitled, The North Sea. Watch a trailer for the album and see its tracklist below.
Volcano Choir will head out on the road this fall.
