Justin Vernon Has No Plan for New Bon Iver Album as He 'Doesn't Write Songs Anymore'


Justin Vernon, Bon Iver


Vernon admits that he is not 'in a specific headspace to even begin to illuminate an idea that would create another Bon Iver record.'

Justin Vernon admits that he has no plan to record new music with his Grammy award-winning band, Bon Iver. "I don't really write songs anymore," the musician said during an interview on Australian radio station Triple J.

"The last Bon Iver record was a very 'sitting down with a guitar and writing' kind of record," he continued. "I really have to be in a specific headspace to even begin to illuminate an idea that would create another Bon Iver record, and I'm just not there."

"I'm really honored that Bon Iver gives me a platform to do whatever I want, but there's only so much time you can spend digging through yourself before you become insular," Vernon continued. "I'm not in a hurry to go back to that temperature. All of the music I've been making shifting away from Bon Iver feels really good... so if I ever do go back to Bon Iver it will be all the better for it."

Despite admitting that he has stopped writing new songs, Vernon is keeping himself busy with various new projects. Earlier this week, Vernon released a new album with his experimental indie band, Volcano Choir. He will also team up with The National, Vampire Weekend and Kurt Vile for an upcoming Grateful Dead cover album.
