Bon Iver's famous ringleader and beating heart, Justin Vernon, is a busy guy. Earlier this year he released an album with his new band, The Shouting Matches, the awesomely titled Grownass Man. Then he collaborated with buddies Poliça (on "Tiff") and Kanye West (on several songs off Yeezus). And now he's got another album coming out soon, this time with his experimental pop project, Volcano Choir. The album is called Repave and it's due out via Jagjaguwar on September 2nd or 3rd, depending on where you live.

Repave's first single, "Byegone," is available to be streamed now. Almost immediately you'll notice that "Byegone" isn't exactly a world apart from the lush, sonic beauty Bon Iver made for all of us with their latest album back in 2011. This is of course great news for Bon Iver's many, many fans. A rose by any other name, and all that. Swoon below:
