During an interview with Minnesota Public Radio’s The Local Show, Justin Vernon of Bon Iver commented on his uncertainty of the band’s future—much to his record label’s dismay.

Last weekend, Local Show host David Campbell asked Vernon what was going on with Bon Iver, reports Rolling Stone.

“[I’m] winding it down,” Vernon replied. “I look at it like a faucet. I have to turn it off and walk away from it because so much of how that music comes together is subconscious or discovering. There’s so much attention on the band, it can be distracting at times. I really feel the need to walk away from it while I still care about it. And then if I come back to it—if at all—I’ll feel better about it and be renewed or something to do that.”

The band’s label, Jagjaguwar, quickly sought to correct the comment, explaining to Pitchfork that the frontman meant to say that he was winding down album promotions.

“They are just going off cycle after two very busy years on the road,” a representative explained.

So, good news, Bon Iver fans—they’re not going anywhere, just taking a short break! In the meantime, watch the band’s September 21 performance at Radio City Music Hall here in New York—but watch it soon, because the set is only available until 9 a.m. tomorrow:
