Justin Vernon and Co. will be releasing their eagerly awaited Bon Iver album on June 21st via Jagjaguwar. We have already heard “Calgary,” the album’s first single (and it was released as a free mp3). Now we’ve caught wind of another new Bon Iver track; this time the album opener, “Perth.”

The song opens with a gorgeous lone guitar that is eventually a joined by a faraway chorus and finally by Justin Vernon, who is, in no uncertain terms, the heart and soul of Bon Iver. The slight choral becomes a delicate march and before you know it, it is bursting at the seams with lively, cannon-like percussion and a band of horns. This is Bon Iver as we’ve never heard them. It’s quite a start to what is surely one of the most anticipated albums of the year.
