Justin Vernon of Grammy-nominated band Bon Iver appeared on Minnesota Public Radio and announced that he may be taking a break coming off a successful year.
Said Vernon to 89.3, The Current, “I’m winding it down. I look at it like a faucet. I have to turn it off and walk away from it because so much of how that music comes together is subconscious or discovering. There’s so much attention on the band, it can be distracting at times. I really feel the need to walk away from it while I still care about it. And then if I come back to it – if at all – I’ll feel better about it and be renewed or something to do that.”

Bon Iver’s live performance at Radio City Music Hall in New York from September 21 is streaming live on YouTube.
