Published Sep 26, 2016Bon Iver first brought 22, A Million 's "8 (circle)" to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but a studio version of the new age pop experiment has now gone live ahead of the official album release. The track was premiered today (September 26) via Annie Mac's BBC program.
As hinted at via the TV performance, the song builds itself up slowly with a series of cloud-soft synths and horn sounds. Justin Vernon's voice is but part of a choir that weighs in on failure and "what forgiveness is." The song ebbs and flows between various a cappella passages towards fuller arrangements with busy digi-drum work.
You can stream the studio version of "8 (circle)" below, while the album is out September 30 through Jagjaguwar.
