At the Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival

Bon Iver debuted two new songs over the weekend at the Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival in Wisconsin.

The festival – organised by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and The National’s Aaron Dessner – also included sets from The National, Sufjan Stevens, Hiss Golden Messenger, Sturgill Simpson and Spoon.

Bon Iver have not released a new album since the self-titled record in 2011. In a new interview with Grantland, Vernon cast doubts over the future of Bon Iver.

“I definitely care about the Bon Iver thing a lot,” he said. “But it’s kind of my thing and there’s only so much time you can spend with yourself before you just become an asshole.”

“I’ve been taking it really slow,” he continued. “I just think maybe I ran my course with being able to come up with new moments on the guitar.”
