Sam Beam will return once more for a fifth Iron & Wine album this spring, following up 2011’s Kiss Each Other Clean.
The new album is entitled Ghost on Ghost and will see release in North America through Nonesuch on April 16th (and via 4AD the day before in the rest of the world).
Speaking about the album, Beam says that he wanted to distance himself from the “anxious tension” that informed his last two albums, Kiss Each Other Clean and The Shepherd’s Dog. The resultant Ghost on Ghost is, Beam says, “a reward to myself after the way I went about making the last few.”
Below you can stream our first taste of the record, a track entitled “Lover’s Revolution.” Beneath that you’ll find Ghost on Ghost‘s cover art and track list.

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
