22, A Million will be out this Friday, September 30. At a press conference in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, bandleader Justin Vernon described the new sound he tapped for the album. "For this one, there’s still some dark stuff and whatever, but I think cracking things, making things that are bombastic and exciting and also new, and mashing things together, and explosiveness and shouting more, I think that was the zone," Vernon told the assembled reporters. "I think shouting. Whispering was maybe the thing before. But this time—[hits his keyboard and makes a loud robot sound]."
