Jagjaguwar reveals BON IVER release date and artwork

Jagjaguwar finally reveals all!

Bon Iver’s “For Emma, Forever Ago” is being heralded as a masterpiece of a debut and an early contender for King of the Hill in 2008. And it hasn’t even been released. Well, mark your calendars, Jagjaguwar has an official release date for the album: February 19th, 2008. We’ve also got an album cover we can share. The icy artwork reflects the cold winter months Bon Iver spent recording the album in rural Wisconsin. 

See the cover art here

“Irresistible.” – The New York Times

“Bon Iver is simply astounding.” – Stereogum

“The album is a ruminative collection of songs full of natural imagery and acoustic strums – the sound of a man left alone with his memories and a guitar…Rarely does folk – indie or otherwise – give so much over to ambience…” – RECOMMENDED by Pitchfork

Bon Iver has also climbed down from his deer stand for the rest of the month to go support Elvis Perkins for an east coast tour of the United States & Canada. And it starts tonight! We had to take a break from marching in our Bon Iver fandom parade to drop our “too good to be true” attitude and chop up press bits and archive nuts for the long winter ahead. That is, we’re doing all we can to just hang on to the thrill ride that is Bon Iver. Muzzle of Bees had the following to say: “Seeing him live is simply a treasure that doesn’t come across too often. Vocally, his reach is otherworldly and I can’t even begin to count the times were I caught myself shaking my head in awe and appreciation.”
