Bumpershine favorite, Iron and Wine, announced a new album and a new label today. From the sounds of the jazzy first single, Ghost on Ghost will not mark a return to Sam’s solo acoustic roots.
Iron and Wine makes its Nonesuch Records debut with Ghost on Ghost in the U.S. on April 16 (April 15 on 4AD in Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand). Ghost on Ghost is the fifth release from singer-songwriter Sam Beam, using the pen name Iron and Wine. The album was produced by Beam’s longtime associate Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Califone, Fruit Bats) and follows 2011’s Kiss Each Other Clean, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard chart to critical acclaim. Iron and Wine will support the new release with tour dates throughout 2013, to be announced soon. A special pre-order at ironandwine.com also will be announced soon.
