Justin Vernon is a musical chameleon, adapting his sound to create wonderful results from his collaborations with a diverse range of artists, including James Blake, Poliça, The Shouting Matches and Yeezus himself. In 2009, Vernon teamed up with fellow Wisconsinites Collections of Colonies of Bees to form Volcano Choir. The group recently announced the release of their second album, Repave, due out September 3rd on Jagjaguwar, as well as a ten-city tour to support said album. Today, Vernon & Co. shared the first single, “Byegone,” which sounds like an extension of the achingly beautiful soundscapes Vernon painted with Bon Iver’s 2011 Bon Iver, Bon Iver. Listen to the moody “Byegone” above, and make sure to grab your tickets when Volcano Choir stop by 9:30 Club on September 12th.
Repave track list and Volcano Choir tour dates are available after the jump.
