Iron & Wine tickets
To celebrate the release, Iron and Wine performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as well as Conan; they will performs on Jimmy Kimmel Live on June 24. Beam and the bandcontinues his tour throughout 2013. See below for details.
For Ghost on Ghost, Beam sought to move from what he called the “anxious tension” of his two previous records. “The manner in which I went about making this record felt like a reward to myself after the last few,” he says. See below for full track listing.
Helping achieve Beam’s vision was a group of stellar musicians including Rob Burger, Steve Bernstein, Brian Blade, Curtis Fowlkes, Tony Garnier, Marika Hughes, Briggan Kraus, Maxim Moston, Tony Scherr, Doug Wieselman, Kenny Wolleson, and Anja Wood. Burger (Tin Hat Trio) has worked with Beam intermittently through the years and handled arrangements for strings and horns on Ghost on Ghost. For the album’s cover, Beam, who is also a visual artist, chose an image from the series “Private Views” by noted photographer Barbara Crane.
The latest video for “Joy” recently premiered on NPR.org as a “First Watch.”
The first three Iron and Wine albums, released on Sub Pop, were The Creek Drank the Cradle (2002), Our Endless Numbered Days (2004), andThe Shepherd’s Dog (2007).
