Fan video captured two new Bon Iver songs played during the band’s performance at the Eaux Claires Music Festival earlier this week. Both songs can be listened to at Consequenceofsound. The performance marked the band’s first set of concert dates in three years, spurring rumor regarding the state of the band.
During an interview with David Campell of The Current in 2012, Justin Vernon said the following about the future of Bon Iver: “I have to turn it off and walk away from it because so much of how that music comes together is subconscious or discovering. There’s so much attention on the band, it can be distracting at times. I really feel the need to walk away from it while I still care about it.”
No official word has been issued regarding the release of a new album. Bon Iver’s last album, the self-titled Bon Iver, Bon Iver was released in 2011.
