Bon Iver have shared new song, “33 ‘God’”. This comes in aid of their new album, 22, A Million set to be released on Friday, September 30. The song also comes complete with a lyric video.
“33 ‘God’” starts with piano, earnest and seeking for joy. The vocals, too, are searching, perhaps searching for a higher level. The drone of slightly distorted bass and industrial drum give it bite. Overall, a very ethereal effort.
The lyric video reads like eyes going down the page of a book, rather than just popping up. Not only does it focus on the lyrics, the visuals become suitably animated during spells of lively instrumentation. The backdrop to the whole thing is also what appears to be dark, wet woods at night time.
