Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) + Roots - “Perth” (extended version) Live on Fallon

Bon Iver‘s masterful sophomore LP will be re-released in a digital-only Deluxe Edition on November 29th via Jagjaguwar. While no new music is included, the set packs 10 short films, one for each of the album’s 10 tracks, offering a “comprehensive vision for the record captured in moving picture.”

Explains an issued press release:

Comprised of individual visual works that both complement and enrich the audio on the album, the video accompaniment was in itself another year in the making. Featuring work by Dan Huiting, Isaac Gale, David Jensen, JoLynn Garnes and Justin Vernon, the video work is meant to be consumed as a visual extension of the music, to enhance each listener’s experience with one of the year’s most acclaimed albums. While not music videos per se, these visual accompaniments are striking in their distinctive atmosphere, and compelling works in their own right.

The band’s publicist also adds that the films are best experienced on a “mobile device with headphone.”

The digital release will be available through iTunes. In addition, a limited number of DVDs will also be made available for giveaway when you buy the record at participating record stores or through Jagjaguwar mailorder starting in early December.

Below, you can watch a trailer for the Deluxe Edition, followed by the album’s tracklist.

Bon Iver - “Calgary” x “Perth” Live on Jools Holland

Again, another performance that aired fully this evening in the UK on Later.. with Jools Holland was the impeccable and brilliant Bon Iver who brought along two more tracks off of the beautiful self titled album, Bon Iver . They dropped by to add “Calgary” and “Perth” to the set of which we saw them perform “Towers” earlier in the week.

Check out the rendition of “Perth” at the top and after the jump you can peep “Calgary” and in turn start your weekend off with some incredible live music.

Bon Iver Premieres New Video For “Calgary”

Justin Vernon is one enigmatic fellow.

It’s not always easy to decipher the poetry of his songs, but we still love to soak in the reverberant melodies and uncover the mystery of Bon Iver.

Maybe one of the biggest puzzles yet is the video for his latest single, “Calgary.” It’s abstract, sultry and features a backwards bear and people falling through hidden worlds in the earth.

Take a crack at unraveling it yourself.
