WATCH: Bon Iver play unreleased ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’ track on album’s 10th anniversary

As Bon Iver’s debut studio album, For Emma, Forever Ago, turns ten this week, Justin Vernon and his bandmates are celebrating the seminal album’s milestone with two special releases.

Bon Iver commemorated a decade of For Emma, Forever Ago at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on February 17, where the band delivered a full performance of the album. Interspersed among the album staples like “Skinny Love” and “Blindsided” was “Hayward, WI,” an unreleased song that Vernon composed during the time span in which he was at work on For Emma, Forever Ago. Fortunately for those not in attendance, a fan captured live footage of the indie gem as Bon Iver debuted the track.

In addition, Bon Iver released a limited-edition reissue of For Emma, Forever Ago.
