For Emma, Forever Ago is set to be released nation-wide on Jagjaguwar Records on February 19th, 2008.

Justin Vernon moved to a remote cabin in the woods of Northwestern Wisconsin at the onset of winter.

I know you're kind of a BIG DEAL and probably too busy to 're visit' but we'd love to hear if you have anything new you'd like to share on this site!
btw
listening to For Emma..you say you wrote it after some time in a remote cabin, eh?

I had a wild deer that followed me around my yard.
Stared at my window for hours until I came out to offer some strawberries or apples..
For some reason she liked our yard and often slept in the flower beds in the shade during the summer....
I named her EMMA
