The new Iron and Wine album, Kiss Each Other Clean, will have a new sound and direction, Sam Beam has told Spin. "It sounds like the music people heard in their parent's car growing up... that early-to-mid-'70s FM, radio-friendly music," he said. "There are a lot of live horns and synths, too."
Now we have a release date and a track list. Kiss Each Other Clean is set for release on Jan. 25, 2011 on Warner Bros. Records in North America and 4AD in Europe, Japan, and Australia. What's more, there's a single for the song "Walking Far From Home" on Nov. 26, in your choice of 12" vinyl or CD. Iron and Wine and new music for you as you celebrate the holidays.
It will be the follow up to their 2007 album The Shepherd's Dog. In the meantime, you can catch them at any number of tour dates in the U.S. with a European tour promised for the new year. Tickets are on sale now.
The indie/folk act caught national attention with their cover of "Such Great Heights" by the Postal Service, but have gone on to define their own sound. They released a number of full-length albums and EPs through their previous label Sub Pop Records.
