Justin Vernon of Bon Iver has revealed in his interview with USA Today that his band’s next album may take as long as five years to flesh out. Said Vernon:

I don’t have any songs written yet. I’m guessing three years. But it could be five. It could be only one more. It just depends when the songs come about. I sort of have to wait till they reveal themselves.

Well, damn. His next LP better be mind-blowing. Let’s hope this songs “reveal themselves” soon, because some of us aren’t that patient.
