A few months back we heard news of Bon Iver's new project, Volcano Choir, which is a collection of Wisconsinites and longtime friends, made up Bon Iver's, Justin Vernon working with the band, Collections of Colonies of Bees. The collaboration we're told actually predates Vernon's Bon Iver, with some of the original songwriting dating back to the summer of 2005, around the time the Bees first toured with Vernon's previous band DeYarmond Edison.
The new album, Unmap doesn't come out until Sept. 22nd via Jagjaguwar, but a new song has been made available from the project, called "Island, IS" which shows a different side of Vernon, complete with synths and loops.
