The most recent Bon Iver album was 2016’s 22, A Million, and while there’s no concrete news about its follow-up yet, it appears that one could be on the way. A month ago, he shared a pair of new songs (“Hey, Ma” and “U (Man Like)”) and unveiled a strange new website, iCOMMAi. Now the band has released a mysterious new video titled “Sincerity Is Forever In Season,” and it appears to be a trailer or teaser for something. Whatever it is, it seems to be related to iCOMMAi.
The minute-long video (which was created/produced/directed by Aaron Anderson and Eric Timothy Carlson) features a montage of nature clips and a gruff-sounding voiceover, all scored by snippets of songs from throughout the Bon Iver discography. The video also features the slogan “Keep it Restaurant,” a promise that something is “coming soon,” and a note that whatever this is was produced by Chris Messina, Brad Cook, and Justin Vernon.
Vernon previously said of Bon Iver in a press release related to iCOMMAi, “This project began with a single person, but throughout the last 11 years, the identity of Bon Iver has bloomed and can only be defined by the faces in the ever growing family we are.”
