Bon Iver Reveals Deluxe Edition of This Year's Self-Titled Album
Published Nov 18, 2011Bon Iver is readying a deluxe version of this year's game-changing Bon Iver, but the extra goodies will come not in the form of added songs, but video accompaniment for all of the album's songs.
Jagjaguwar will be issuing a digital version of the set on November 29 that will host ten visual pieces that exist as the "comprehensive vision for the record captured in moving picture."
Featured will be short films helmed by Dan Huiting, Isaac Gale, David Jensen, JoLynn Garnes and the project's own Justin Vernon, with the clips serving as an extension to the beauty that is Bon Iver's latest disc.
The press sheet points out that these aren't exactly traditional music videos, but "visual accompaniments" that "are striking in their distinctive atmosphere, and compelling works in their own right." You can check the slow-mo trailer, full of aerial shots and nature scenes, below.
Vernon is no stranger to tying scintillating screen shots with his music. Just check the already existing, Icelandic landscape-saluting clip for "Holoscene" for proof.
The deluxe version will primarily be delivered as a digital set, but a small quantity of DVDs will be sent to select record stores and be available through Jagjaguwar's mail order.
