Iron and Wine’s Sam Beam + Jesca Hoop Share Bright, Beautiful Video for ‘Every Songbird Says’
Tomorrow (April 15), Iron and Wine’s Sam Beam and singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop will release their joint album, Love Letter for Fire, and ahead of its arrival, the newly minted duo has shared a music video for lead single “Every Songbird Says.”
Created by Nacho Rodriguez and Sara López, the video features vivid watercolor illustration that opens with Beam and Hoop singing. Their images quickly morph into a series of half-human, half-animal figures dancing their way through beautiful, pastoral scenes. Check it out above (via Stereogum).
Love Letter for Fire is out tomorrow via Sub Pop and Beam’s Black Cricket Recording. You can grab a digital download at iTunes or a physical copy (vinyl, CD or cassette) at the Sub Pop website.
The two singers will launch a North American tour in support of the album next month. The trek begins on May 17 in Ann Arbor, Mich., and culminates with a show in Chicago on June 11. Take a look at their full itinerary right here.
