Listen to Two Songs From Sam Beam + Ben Bridwell’s Covers Album, ‘Sing Into My Mouth’
Iron and Wine’s Sam Beam and Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell recently announced they would release a joint album of covers entitled, Sing Into My Mouth. Now, they have unveiled two tracks from the upcoming album: Sade’s “Bullet Proof Soul,” which you can hear above, and Unicorn’s “No Way Out of Here.” Listen to the latter below:
Sing Into My Mouth will arrive on July 17 on Beam’s Black Cricket Records and Bridwell’s Brown Records -- you can pre-order it here. In anticipation of the collaborative album, both artists appeared as one of David Letterman’s final Late Show musical guests last night (April 15). Watch their performance of “No Way Out of Here” at the bottom of this page. As Letterman noted in his introduction of the duo, Beam and Bridwell will appear together at this year's Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island.
In addition to Sing Into My Mouth, Beam also released the first installment of an Iron and Wine archival series back in February. It coincided with Dreamers and Makers Are My Favorite People, a documentary chronicling Beam’s performance of Iron and Wine rarities at the Jerry Run Theater in Cleveland, West Virginia.
