Bon Iver's new album i, i comes out August 30 via Jagjaguwar, and so far four songs are streaming, and he's also gearing up for a big arena tour. Bon Iver has also now released a 12-minute documentary on YouTube, directed by Andrew Swant and presented by WeTransfer, which "provides insight into the production of Bon Iver's upcoming 2019 tour and sheds light on the evolution of Bon Iver from a solo artist into a creative collective over the last ten years." It's called Bon Iver: Autumn, and here's an excerpt of the synopsis:

This year marks another point in the Bon Iver story. In August the band will release their fourth album, i,i, followed by Autumn, a North American tour that will take them to the close of the year. “This project keeps evolving and each iteration raises the bar from one version to the next,” says Bon Iver’s production designer, Michael Brown. “We’re doing this to both challenge ourselves and reward the fans that are coming back to see what is being created or even re-invented. We want our audiences to have a completely new experience every time they come to a show.”

In this exclusive documentary for WePresent we delve into the intricate production of Autumn, share in the camaraderie between the band and find out why Bon Iver will always let the music speak for itself.

A press release on the film also adds:

Throughout the film, Justin Vernon and members of Bon Iver discuss maintaining the intimacy of their live shows inside the biggest rooms they've ever played. Introducing an installation of light-tracking mirrors and a sound design that envelops the audience within the music, the scale of these performances has been built to match both the expanse and closeness of i,i.
