Speaking about i,i, which follows 2016’s 22, A Million, Bon Iver mainman Justin Vernon said: “It feels very much like the most adult record, the most complete.

“It feels like when you get through all this life, when the sun starts to set, and what happens is you start gaining perspective. And then you can put that perspective into more honest, generous work.”
