As of 28 Nov, interested parties will be able to get their mitts on the digital-only deluxe edition of Bon Iver’s second album, ‘Bon Iver’. Set for release on iTunes, it will pair each track on the LP with a short film, featuring work by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and visual artists Dan Huiting, Isaac Gale, David Jensen and JoLynn Garnes.
The press release describes it best: “The video work is meant to be consumed as a visual extension of the music, to enhance each listener’s experience with one of the year’s most acclaimed albums. While not music videos per se, these visual accompaniments are striking in their distinctive atmosphere, and compelling works in their own right”.
So, that all sounds rather pretentious. The trailer for the ten films does look beautiful, though, like an episode of ‘Frozen Planet’ minus those cruel, heartless orcas.
