Bon Iver Keeps the '22 Days' Conspiracy Alive with Mysterious New Murals
Published Aug 09, 2016A few weeks back, Justin Vernon announced that he would be bringing his Bon Iver project out of retirement to play a set of new songs at the upcoming Eaux Claires Festival in his home state of Wisconsin this summer. In a video clip, he cryptically teased that something big would be happening in 22 days.
That countdown ends this Friday (August 12) — which is when Bon Iver will take the aforementioned stage — and now fans are speculating that something even bigger might be in the works.
Many have guessed that an album titled 22 Days could be on the way, and now those rumours are being fuelled by a series of new murals that have appeared in Brooklyn.
They feature the same cryptic "22" that appeared in the previously shared video, as well as the phrase "It might be over soon" and artistic renderings of an ear and a rainbow. See photos of it for yourself below, courtesy of the keen eye of a Reddit user named sara520.
Additionally, Bon Iver's Facebook page has been updated with a new profile picture and cover photo that mimic the imagery that appeared in the video and include the word "Math." We might have to wait it out for another three days before anything is made official, but clearly Vernon is up to something.
Bon Iver's last LP was the Grammy-winning self-titled album released in 2011.
