He mulled over thoughts about his relationship with Jensen, a break-up he had struggled to get over. He had an idea for a song and brought inside his musical equipment, which consisted of several guitars, microphones, and a Power Mac G4 with Pro Tools LE. According to Vernon, major labels were "desperate" to sign him, offering contracts in which he chose the deal. It became a major commercial success for Jagjaguwar, an independent label, and has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for combined sales, streaming and track-sales equivalent of over one million units.

It was self-released in 2007 and received wider release on the Jagjaguwar label in February 2008 (and on 4AD label in the UK in May 2008).

Composition [ edit ] Vernon's method of arranging his vocals was inspired by the Vienna Boys' Choir. Vernon, then 25, [9] felt his life had spiraled into mediocrity, as though he had lost the sense of purpose he had a half-decade prior.For Emma, Forever Ago is the 2007 debut album by Bon Iver, who at the time consisted solely of Justin Vernon.
