Justin Vernon has launched his own record label. Chigliak Records will be an imprint of Jagjaguwar, the label that released the Grammy-nominated Bon Iver in 2011.
Chigliak will issue albums that were never commercially released in the past as well as new recordings. Vernon previously discussed the label back in 2010 when he told Pitchfork, “I’m actually starting an imprint at Jagjaguwar called Chigliak, and Amateur Love is going to be the first record I put out.”
The first official release will be a reissue of It’s All Aquatic by Amateur Love, followed by releases from Sarah Siskind (who toured with Bon Iver) and 12 Rods.
