Iron & Wine
Plus special guest John Moreland
Iron & Wine will release Beast Epic, his first new material in over four years. It is available worldwide starting August 25th. The new long player features eleven new compositions that share a certain kinship with his earlier material.
Iron & Wine will tour in support of Beast Epic, with a stop at the Balboa Theatre in San Diego on Saturday, October 28 with special guest John Moreland.
Beast Epic was written and produced by Iron & Wine’s principal songwriter Sam Beam. It was recorded and engineered by Tom Schick at the Loft in Chicago in July 2016 and January 2017, and mastered by Richard Dodd in Nashville, Tennessee. The musicians who played on the album include longtime Iron & Wine collaborators Rob Burger (keys), Joe Adamik (percussion), and Jim Becker (guitar, banjo, violin, mandolin), along with bassist Sebastian Steinberg (Soul Coughing and Fiona Apple), and Chicagoan Teddy Rankin Parker (cello).
Iron & Wine has also delivered a video for the lead track, “Call It Dreaming,” which stars the singer and was directed by J. Austin Wilson [watch here].
