I have to say I was pretty excited to see a new Iron and Wine track up on Soundcloud today. It has been a long time since Kiss Each Other Clean came out, and you never know what approach Samuel Beam is going to take.
The new track, “Lovers’ Revolution” is what I can only call a jazz piece. Filled with smoky horns, some chords beat out of a piano, and Beam backed up by some female vocals. There’s even an improvised trumpet solo.
So is the next Iron and Wine album going to be a jazz influenced album? Who knows, but it’s definitely an interesting approach. Guess will have to wait until April 16 when Ghost on Ghost drops.
