Earlier this month, Justin Vernon announced a new Bon Iver album — i,i is officially out August 30 via Jagjaguwar. We’ve already heard four of the songs on the album, but it looks like fans in select cities have the opportunity to hear the full project a few weeks early.
Vernon has announced a series of i,i listening parties scheduled for August 7. You can RSVP for your city’s listening party in the corresponding event page on Bon Iver’s website. Each party has a different description of the event, but it sounds like most cities will be offering freebies, giveaways, and (of course) an early listen of the album.
