Another song from the long awaited third album.
Bon Iver’s 22, A Million isn’t out until the end of the month, but mastermind Justin Vernon hasn’t held back on sharing songs from it. Last night, he appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon to debut ‘8 (circle),’ the centerpiece to the album’s second half.
With his crew positioned behind booths filled primarily with samplers and synths, the performance is a far cry from the folksier Bon Iver who appeared on the show in 2011. Yet, the emotive peaks and Vernon’s vocal commitment build to majestic climax. ‘8 (circle)’ follows ’33 ‘GOD”, ’22 (OVER S∞∞N)’, and ’10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⊠ ⊠’, making the performance another exciting piece to 22, A Million‘s puzzle.
