Justin Vernon must be a workaholic or at least have a serious case of short attention span, and that is not a bad thing in his case.  From Bon Iver to Volcano Choir to Shouting Matches and even running a record label,  Vernon keeps himself out of trouble.  Now add producer of the forthcoming album from The Blind Boys of Alabama to all of that.The forthcoming album is entitled I'll Find My Way and was recorded and produced at Vernon's studio April Base in Eau Claire.

Vernon also enlisted several artists to appear on the album including Tune-Yards and Sam Amidon, and Vernon himself appears on the track "Every Grain of Sand."  Blind Boys of Alabama even cover the song "I Am Not Waiting Anymore" by Milwaukee's Field Report. Below is the full tracklisting for I'll Find My Way, which will be released in October. (via Pitchfork)
