    Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon is going hip-hop. He has formed a new hip-hop leaning project with Astronautilis.

    V + A recorded an entire album last weekend.

    "This process was exhilarating, and it drove us further. We were originally going to be down there for a day," commented Astronautilis said. Apparently, he freestyled for eight hours over music that Vernon had made. Wow.

    The project has a name, but the it has not yet been shared.

    They also want to release music quickly.

    Are you interested in this project?
