Bon Iver (Justin Vernon and band) are releasing a new album, 22, A Million, this Friday (September 30) via Jagjaguwar. Previously we had been treated to extended versions the album's first three tracks, "22 (OVER S∞∞N)," "10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⚄ ⚄," and "33 'GOD'." Now another song from the album, "8 (a circle)," has premiered on Annie Mac's show on BBC Radio 1. Previously the band performed the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but now you can hear the studio version below, followed by Bon Iver's upcoming tour dates.

The album is the follow-up to 2011's Bon Iver and was recorded and produced mainly at April Base Studios in Fall Creek, WI, with portions also recorded in London, England and just outside Lisbon, Portugal by Vernon and "a pack of trusted friends and collaborators both new and old." 

A press release describes the album as such: "22, A Million is part love letter, part final resting place of two decades of searching for self-understanding like a religion. And the inner-resolution of maybe never finding that understanding. The album's 10 poly-fi recordings are a collection of sacred moments, love's torment and salvation, contexts of intense memories, signs that you can pin meaning onto or disregard as coincidence. If Bon Iver built a habitat rooted in physical spaces, then 22, A Million is the letting go of that attachment to a place."
