Bon Iver's Justin Vernon unveils newest project

Justin Vernon of Bon Iver fame has had a magical run over the past year and a half. So all that awaits now is the follow- up. Fans anxious for any new material from Vernon can quell their thirst slightly with the unveiling of the new project, Volcano Choir. The group is a collection of Wisconsinites and longtime friends that sees Vernon working with the band, Collections of Colonies of Bees. The collaboration actually predates Vernon's Bon Iver with original songwriting dating back to the summer of 2005, right around the time the Bees first toured with Vernon's previous band DeYarmond Edison and then ultimately came together over a weekend in November 2008 at Justin and Nate Vernon's recording studio.

The new album titled, Unmap will be released on Sept. 22nd via Jagjaguwar.

Unmap track list:
01 Husks and Shells
02 Seeplymouth
03 Island, IS
04 Dote
05 And Gather
06 Mbira in the Morass
07 Cool Knowledge
08 Still
09 Youlogy
