Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon closed out his set at All Points East in London late Sunday night, sharing two new songs as well as directing the crowd to a cryptic website that seems to be teasing a new project entitled iCOMMAi. The new songs, which are speculatively being called “Hey Ma” and “U” carry through with much of the group’s signature sound, which relish in relaxed and nearly melancholic soundscapes with Vernon’s ethereal vocals carrying forth. The first of the tracks was first previewed at the group’s Bonnaroo performance last year.
Near the end of Bon Iver’s set a link to the cryptic new website, icommai.com, was featured on the screen in the backdrop. The site features a variety of pictures as if presented as a mood board, with the most recent post from June 2 showcasing a robust list of collaborators, including Bruce Hornsby, Moses Sumney, The National’s Bryce Dessner, and more.
Currently, it is assumed that iCOMMAi will be the follow-up to the group’s 2016 album 22, A Million. Stay tuned to HYPEBEAST as more information surrounding the project is likely to be revealed in the near future.
For more music news, Jai Paul resurfaced with a new double-sided single.
