Weekend Tune: “For Emma, Forever Ago” by Bon Iver

In honour of this windy warm weekend, here’s some Bon Iver to drift away to…

Wouldn’t it be splendid to be walking around Paris and stumble into this? So lovely!

New to Bon Iver? Well let me help. Here’s the Bon Iver breakdown.

  • That handsome singer-songwriter fronting Bon Iver is Justin Vernon
  • “For Emma, Forever Ago” is not only the name of the song above, but name of Bon Iver’s debut album from 2008
  • Most of the record was written over three months spent in a remote cabin in Northwestern Wisconsin – after a breakup!
  • Recognize that voice? Kanye West sampled “Woods” for “Lost In This World” and got Justin Vernon to contributed vocals for his lasted release “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”

Bon Iver’s second album (titled “Bon Iver”) comes out June 21st, but until then you can stream the entire new album here!
I recommend you do so, alongside some tea and a cozy blanket during the next thunderstorm.

    I love this song; possibly the only good use of auto-tune I have heard.
