Iron & Wine announces new album, single, video – Watch

In all the excitement of the election on Thursday (and boy was it exciting) we missed this news from Paste that Sam Beam is back with a strong and stable album as well as a video for his new single which you can watch below. They report: “Iron & Wine has announced his new album, Beast Epic, his first release since 2013’s Ghost On Ghost. The album will be available on Aug. 25 via Sub Pop. With the album’s announcement, Iron & Wine has also released a single, as well as its music video, from the forthcoming album, titled “Call It Dreaming.”“To be honest, I’ve named this record BEAST EPIC mostly because it sounds really fucking cool,” said Sam Beam, the singer-songwriter behind Iron & Wine. “However, with that said and perhaps to be completely honest, ‘a story where animals talk and act like people’ sounds like the perfect description for the life of any of us.”

Beam released a long statement regarding the announcement, which you can read [here]. Above that, watch the music video for “Call It Dreaming” and see the album artwork and tracklist. Beast Epic is available for preorder here.
