Best of 2019: Bon Iver's i,i
From the icy solitude of For Emma, Forever Ago, Bon Iver brought his catalogue full circle in 2019 with his fourth studio record, i,i, his warmest and most outward-looking, generous music yet. Made in collaboration with a total of 52 of his contemporaries, including James Blake, Moses Sumney and many more, i,i is the natural end of the empathetic, innovative, community-minded approach to songwriting Justin Vernon has been honing since the start of his endlessly shapeshifting Bon Iver project. One of our favourite records of the year, i,i shows why no one writes a song quite like him. TRACKLIST: 'Yi' 'iMi' 'We' 'Holyfields,' 'Hey, Ma' 'U (Man Like)' 'Naeem' 'Jelmore' 'Faith' 'Marion' 'Salem' 'Sh'Diah' 'RABi' Like a book club for music nerds, For The Record takes a deep dive into a different album each week that we think is worthy of your love and attention. Hosted by Dan Gordon & Maia Bilyk. Produced by Kyle Fensom.

We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge their ongoing struggle. Sovereignty was never ceded.
