Iron and Wine is offering "Tree By The River" as a download today to fans at the band's official website www.ironandwine.com. The track is the debut single from Iron and Wine's forthcoming album, Kiss Each Other Clean, to be released January 25th, 2011, through Warner Bros. Records in North America and 4AD in Europe, Japan, and Australia.
Iron and Wine also recently announced 3 select shows in January around the album release, including two shows at the Wiltern in Los Angeles on January 25th and 26th, followed by a show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on January 29th. The band will announce a full spring tour early next year.
Iron and Wine is led by front man Sam Beam. The South Carolina-born, Texas-based Beam announced himself as a classic American tunesmith with a precocious musical signature on Iron and Wine's epically sparse debut album in 2002, The Creek Drank the Cradle. Followed by 2003's The Sea & The Rhythm EP, 2004 brought both the full-length Our Endless Numbered Days, along with Beam's gentle rendering of The Postal Service's "Such Great Heights," featured on the Garden State soundtrack. In the Reins - a collaborative album with Calexico, along with Woman King EP was released in 2005, while the lyrically evocative, casually atmospheric The Shepherd's Dog came out in 2007, debuting at No. 24 on Billboard's Top 200 Album chart and earning praise from the critics. Iron and Wine's song "Flightless Bird, American Mouth" was featured on 2008's best-selling soundtrack to the movie Twilight.
