Bon Iver – Holocene

On March 23, 2011, Justin Vernon told Rolling Stone that a follow up of For Emma, Forever Ago would be released in June. The as yet untitled album will be composed of 10 songs and take a new musical direction. “I brought in a lot of people to change my voice — not my singing voice, but my role as the author of this band, this project,” says Vernon, who hired well-known players like bass saxophonist Colin Stetson and pedal-steel guitarist Greg Leisz. “I built the record myself, but I allowed those people to come in and change the scene.” Despite there being a track listing that was unreleased, Vernon did say that each song on the new album represents a place. The song «Perth» was described as a «Civil War-sounding heavy metal song,» the song «Minnesota Wisconsin» was described as featuring «finger-picked guitars, double bass drums and distorted bass saxophone,» and the closing song «Beth/Rest» will be «horn heavy.»[32]

The album was recorded in a remodeled veterinarian clinic in Fall Creek, Wisconsin, which was bought by Vernon and his brother in 2008. It was converted into April Base Studios, built mainly over the defunct swimming pool attached to the clinic. Vernon’s reason for recording in the location was that «[it’s] been a wonderful freedom, working in a place we built. It’s also only three miles from the house I grew up in, and just ten minutes from the bar where my parents met.
