Bon Iver Signs to Jagjaguwar

Bon Iver, aka former DeYarmond Edison member Justin Vernon, has signed to Jagjaguwar for the official release of his sweet-spot-hitting debut For Emma, Forever Ago early next year.

For Emma is Bon Iver's (pronounced "bohn eevair") souvenir of a three-month stay in a cabin in the woods of northwestern Wisconsin. Vernon originally self-released the record, which explains the fact that Pitchfork already (very favorably) reviewed it and tagged it as a Recommended album.

Vernon will venture out this fall for a handful of shows starting November 10 in Madison, Wisconsin.

Bon voyage:
