The new Iron and Wine album Ghost on Ghost is streaming in full a week ahead of its release. Check it out in full courtesy of NPR Music. It's the new free Sam Beam, as he has said that his approach to Ghost On Ghost was a lot more open and less tension-filled than his previous albums. He used the words "anxious tension" to describe the experience of previous albums.
“This record felt like a reward to myself after the way I went about making the last few,” he said.
The result is a free-flowing vibe that sounds more opening and less forced. Gone are the tightly orchestrated Iron and Wine workouts and in their place are songs that are reminscent of the 19070's rock and and soft rock portrayed in the modern day. If you dig it, check him out on tour.
NPR Music said this: "A dozen years into a career with few missteps, Beam still lets his songs and sound morph and evolve; more than ever, he's a songwriter versatile enough to pack huge ideas into simple arrangements and vice versa."
