Tuck in and listen to the band's long-awaited third album before the extended weekend is over

Bon Iver fans waited five long years for the release of a new album following 2011's Bon Iver, Bon Iver, and 22, A Million is finally here to prove that it's worth the wait. Known for their folksy sounds of beautiful yet melancholic tunes, Bon Iver has taken a seemingly new direction in their new album—one that is more experimental, with Justin Vernon's voice going on unusual synthesising trips and turns through the tracks. But it concludes with the familiar sound we have come to know in '00000 Million', with just Vernon, the piano, and a faint sample of Irish folksinger Fionn Regan taking it home.
