Gregory Euclide & Bon Iver

i’ve been holding out on listening to the new Bon Iver album because i’ve been hearing so much about it online and fear a bit of a build up / let down situation. the same thing happens when i constantly hear about an amazing film, then usually end up only seeing it a year later when all the fuss has died down. i’m sure that the album is amazing and i have nothing to worry about… but, you know, it technically only drops on 21 june.  sooo. let’s talk about it then shall we?

unsurprisingly i immediately fell in love with the cover art of both the album and the lead single Calgary, which was created by artist Gregory Euclide (who had been personally commissioned by frontman Justin Vernon). Meighan has a great interview with Gregory over at My Love For You which i urge you to read if you want to know more about his process. it’s also incredibly awesome to see an artist who so readily shares his work & process online – you can explore all his work over at his flickr, and watch his videos documenting the making of his pieces on youtube.

    I’ve listened to the album and it just took my breath away. The opening song is the best thing I’ve heard all year long, so I don’t think you will be dissapointed this time ;-)

    Diana – Thank you for the post. I was so excited to post this q&a. I was really moved by the use of real snow in the project, but it doesn’t surprise me, Gregory is incredibly thoughtful in his work.
