Bon Iver's latest album is getting revamped for the holiday season, but it's more than your typical deluxe edition release. Instead of tacking on a few extra songs that didn't make the cut, the introspective indie artist has put together a visual accompaniment for each track. Read the details below, and watch a short trailer for the release above.
Featuring work by Dan Huiting, Isaac Gale, David Jensen, JoLynn Garnes and Justin Vernon, the video work is meant to be consumed as a visual extension of the music, to enhance each listener's experience. While not music videos per se, these visual accompaniments are striking in their distinctive atmosphere, and compelling works in their own right.
The Deluxe Edition will be available on November 29th, 2011 digitally through iTunes, and as a free DVD for a limited time with the purchase of the record at any participating record store or through Jagjaguwar's mailorder starting in early December, 2011.
