A forthcoming documentary and concert film provide insight into Iron and Wine’s catalogue of songs. Sam Beam and his band were filmed performing at the Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw North Carolina by director Josh Sliffe for the project which is titled ‘Who Can See Forever’. The film and accompanying live album will debut November 17th via Sub Pop Records. Beam’s long time sound engineer Jelle Kuiper recorded the music which was then mixed by Matt Ross-Spang. The soundtrack features a career spanning nineteen tracks which include reworked versions of earlier material.
The video for ‘Thomas County Law’ is a preview of what the film holds. Behind the scenes footage is spliced into the live footage as the players perform in an intimate setting with audience members standing close by seemingly on stage. The soundtrack recording will be available on all streaming platforms as well as on limited edition coloured vinyl.
