Justin Vernon has detailed plans to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of debut Bon Iver album For Emma, Forever Ago. The album was self-released in July 2007 before being picked up by indie label Jagjaguwar in February 2008.


It is in February 2018 that Vernon will reissue the album, famously recorded in a remote part of Wisconsin following a break-up. The reissue will be available on CD and vinyl with new artwork and and essay by Bon Iver collaborator Trever Hagen. There will also be a one-off anniversary show for the album on February 17 in Milwaukee. Writing on Instagram, Vernon said the show will "feature guests of old and new.” Copies of the reissue will only be available at the show and through the band’s website.
