Bon Iver have not released a new album since 2011's Bon Iver, Bon Iver. Justin Vernon recently announced that he is working on new Bon Iver music, but there is no news on when a new album may be coming out. At the beginning of May, Vernon was featured on James Blake's "I Need A Forest Fire," which was released as the fifth single from Blake's third LP, The Colour in Anything.
At the end of May, Bon Iver performed a four-night series of shows as part of Sydney Opera House's VIVID Live series. Phone videos of the show, entitled "Cercle," surfaced shortly after the performances. In response, VIVID Live released professionally shot footage of three different songs, "Creature Fear," "Heavenly Father," and "Michicant." Bon Iver will be playing Eaux Claires Music Festival, which is curated by Vernon and The National's Aaron Dessner. The festival takes places August 12-13 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
