Published Sep 09, 2010It's been three years since Iron & Wine's Sam Beam soothed us with his hushed vocals and cozy, intimate folk on 2007's The Shepherd's Dog. Since then, he's tided us over with last year's B-sides compilation, Around the Well, but we've been itching to hear some new material from the highly-touted folkster.
Now, Beam has finally released some new information about his next Iron & Wine LP. Pitchfork reports that it's called Kiss Each Other Clean, and it will hit stores early in 2011.
That's all the news we have for the moment, but it's good to know that more Iron & Wine is on the way. Beam is currently on tour with his band in Europe, and will play a small handful of solo shows in the U.S. next month.
