Iron & Wine announces new album, Beast Epic

Singer-songwriter, Samuel “Sam” Ervin Beam, better known as Iron & Wine, releases new video Call It Dreaming off upcoming new album, Beast Epic.

The band’s fourth album to be released through Seattle-based record label, Sub Pop, and the most recent Iron & Wine studio album since 2013’s Ghost on Ghost, Beast Epic is ‘a collection that speaks to the beauty and pain of growing up after you’ve already grown up.’

In a statement released on Sub Pop’s website, Beam goes on to explain the theme and meaning behind the title: ‘To be honest, I’ve named this record Beast Epic mostly because it sounds really fucking cool! However, with that said and perhaps to be completely honest, “a story where animals talk and act like people” sounds like the perfect description for the life of any of us.  If not that, then it’s at least perfect for any group of songs I’ve ever tried to make.  I hope you enjoy it.’
