After four years, it seems Justin Vernon has decided to properly bring back his Bon Iver project.

In 2013 he told Australian radio station Triple J: "I don’t really write songs anymore… 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."

Vernon however dropped a hint that perhaps a Bon Iver renaissance could be closer than we anticipated. Interviewed by KARE 11 about his inaugural Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival, he said: "It's the perfect platform for us to be like, 'This is how we’re starting this new cycle, new life of the band'... It makes so much sense to start it here."

The festival is being held in his home state of Wisconsin from 17th to 18th July, and could well play host to a new chapter for Bon Iver.
