The name ‘Bon Iver’ is derived from the French for ‘good winter.’ The album was recorded in Justin Vernon’s home town of Eau Claire in Wisconsin, where the temperature rarely rises above freezing in winter. The Calgary Songfacts reports that Vernon told UK newspaper The Sun naming it Bon Iver shows he’s accepting winter is a big part of the album.

    I'm actually now fairly certain it should actually just be "Bon Iver", as it's listed on his website...

    Bon Iver - AIR Studios Sessions (By 4AD and Jagjaguwar). A must-see masterpiece compilation of five stunning songs from his old and new album, including a cover of Bonnie Raitt‘s "I Can’t Make You Love Me".

    Pretty much Justin's take on Spirit of Eden.

    Good album, but it has some of the messiest production I've heard all year. [2]
