Justin Vernon Potentially Giving Bon Iver A Break

Justin Vernon has been extremely successful in 2011 and is continuing this trend but he is telling the press it will not be with his Grammy-nominated group Bon Iver. As much as it pains us to say it, Bon Iver will be taking a long break and will remain in the dark for the next few years.

In a recent interview with USA Today, Justin told the press he is looking to put some of his other projects first. Read a portion of the interview by simply looking below and let UTG know your thoughts.

Also, Vernon says, “I have a big idea to do an American songbook of the greatest women singers. There are so many: Casey (Dienel) from White Hinterland, Bonnie Raitt, Alicia.”

At some point, he wants to do “a one-off charity album to have an excuse to work with a bunch of people that I’d choose to work with, all at once.”

But he says fans shouldn’t count on a new Bon Iver album until 2015 or so.

“I don’t have songs written yet,” Vernon says. “I’m guessing three years. But it could be five. It could be only one more. It just depends when the songs come about. I sort of have to wait till they reveal themselves.”
