Iron & Wine’s first big leap from indie to major label will be completed on Jan. 25, as “Kiss Each Other Clean” drops on Warner Bros.
It will be Sam Beam and Co.’s first album since leaving Sub Pop, though judging from the tracklist and song titles, the music may not be that much of a departure. There seems to still be a general mix of nature, love and the sacred, with song titles like “Me and Lazarus,” “Tree by the River’ and “Your Fake Name Is Good Enough for Me.”
As previously reported, I&W will be on the road in November starting on the 13th. However, according to a release, two marquee stops have been added around the release date: the band will stop off at New York’s vaulted Radio City Music Hall in New York on Jan. 29 and at Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theater on Jan. 26th. Tickets for those go up on Friday (Nov. 12).
The first track from the album, “Walking Far from Home,” will be out as part of a special Record Store Day Black Friday event, with a CD single and 12″ vinyl version of the song dropping on Nov. 26
