Following a break-up with his girlfriend and the break-up of his band DeYarmond Edison, Justin Vernon aka Bon Iver, secluded himself in a cabin in Medford, Wisconsin for three months planning to "hibernate." These three months of solitude resulted in the creation of For Emma, Forever Ago.

Vernon self-released the album in 2007 followed by a wider release by Jagjaguwar on Feb 19, 2008.
