Iron and Wine’s Sam Beam + Jesca Hoop to Release Collaborative Album, Debut ‘Every Songbird Says’
Iron and Wine’s Sam Beam and singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop have teamed up on a collaborative album dubbed Love Letter for Fire that’s due out this spring.
The forthcoming LP spans 13 duets that combine the two singer’s weathered tones for idyllic results. The track list (see below) includes "Every Songbird Says," which the duo debuted today (Feb. 10). Take a listen:
Love Letter for Fire will land in stores on April 15 via Sub Pop. Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Modest Mouse) produced the record, and Wilco’s Glen Kotche and multi-instrumentalist and composer Robert Burger both contribute.
Shortly after Love Letter for Fire’s arrival, Beam and Hoop will embark on a North American tour in support of the LP. The run of dates kicks off on May 17 in Ann Arbor, Mich. They have more stops planned through mid-June, culminating with a show on the 11th in Chicago. See their complete itinerary below:
