Album Stream: Iron and Wine - Ghost on Ghost

iron and wine ghost

Iron and Wine's excellently titled new record Ghost on Ghost is out next week, but you can take an early listen now thanks to NPR. Find 45 minutes today to stream it, we promise it's worth it - from the idiosyncratic tempo changes and layered textures of "Caught in the Briars" through simpler folk-pop arrangements inflected with plenty of horns and group vocals (like those of "The Desert Babbler") through slow-burners like "Winter Prayers," Sam Beam and company have put together a set of irresistible, poignant, complex tracks. Check it out - and if you're desperate for a physical copy, you can pick one up April 16.
