June 2021 marked the tenth anniversary of the worldwide release of Bon Iver’s highly acclaimed sophomore release Bon Iver, Bon Iver. To commemorate the occasion, the band and 4AD will release a limited edition reissue of the influential album – Bon Iver, Bon Iver (10th Anniversary Edition) – on CD and LP on 14th January, 2022. This edition features five songs from Bon Iver’s beautiful AIR Studios session, which captures the grand spirit of Bon Iver, Bon Iver and distils it into sharper focus, as Justin Vernon and Sean Carey perform the songs as a duo, on grand pianos and vocals only.
Bon Iver, Bon Iver (10th Anniversary Edition) features a blind embossed version of the original cover art and an intimate personal essay from long-time fan Phoebe Bridgers recalling how the “massive, sprawling, unbelievably complex” album brings about both yearning for yesterday, contentment for the present, and collective hope for the future. The album’s iconic cover art has been reimagined to a minimal white-on-white, with a white LP to match.
