Bon Iver is the definition of indie rock. After making a name for themselves thanks to their soaring sound and Justin Vernon’s raw vocals, the band has released a slew of timeless tracks while headlining the biggest festivals in the world.

A Best Alternative Music Album nomination at the 2017 GRAMMYs for 22, A Million was one of the last concrete updates on new music from Vernon and crew. Now, the band is back with their first new recorded music since September 2016.

Bon Iver dropped two new songs at once. The tracks, “Hey, Ma” and “U (Man Like)” were officially previewed at their All Points East headlining set after appearing on setlist for the past year. The Sunday, June 2 debut closed their set with the two tracks being played over the speakers with accompanying visuals.
