In the days leading prior Bon Iver's new album i,i (scheduled for August 30th), we're graced with a few other singles off the record. In case you've missed the previous releases - a few weeks ago the band released "Hey Ma" and "Faith".
update - full album review and stream can be found here
I woke up to the news of 4 new tracks. Besides "iMi", there are 3 other lyrical videos for songs taken from i,i - "We", "Holyfields," and "Naeem" all of which deserve their own post, because damn… these are reason to love life.
I am kicking off with "iMi" because it hit my heart from the very first listen, so I actually haven't had the chance to dig deeper into the other songs. The video features choreographer Taylor Collier (TU Dance) and is just mesmerizing to watch. Interesting to note is the involvement of James Blake in this. I mean these 2 cannot do anything wrong.
For those looking for track's lyrics...
(All my life!)
(Ewwww, mine was a lover of a wrong kind…)
(Keepin what you tell'n me)
(I know mine…)
Living in a lonesome way…
Had me looking other ways
Cause I am, I am, I am, I am lost here, again
But on a brite fall morning Im with it
I Stood a little while within it
Man you have to know
Know the way, it goes
If forgiveness is a chore
What you waiting for
We been here before?
And I can't ignore it anymore
You know the way it goes
How much longer then?? (I show you in)
(Now I'll tell you why)
If that ain't just the truth
I am, I am, I am, I am
I like you, I like you!
And that ain't nothing new
