Iron & Wine's Sam Beam and Jesca Hoop will join forces on new album 'Love Letter For Fire'.
The record was seemingly sparked by Sam's love of duets, and the songwriter quickly found a kindred spirit in the form of Jesca Hoop.
Sam explains: “Some of my favourite songs are duets, because the narrative is expanded. It’s not just a monologue. It’s a conversation, and so it gets complicated. I had melodies over the years that I’d been compiling that I thought, this sounds like a classic Kenny and Dolly, ‘Islands in the Stream’ kind of thing, or George and Tammy”.
'Love Letter For Fire' will be released on April 15th, with sessions being produced, recorded and mixed by Tucker Martine at Flora Recording & Playback in Portland.
