Iron & Wine
with The Secret Sisters
Iron and Wine makes its Nonesuch Records debut with Ghost on Ghost, available now. Ghost on Ghost is the fifth release from singer-songwriter Sam Beam using the pen name Iron and Wine. The album was produced by Beam’s longtime associate Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Califone, Fruit Bats) and follows 2011’s Kiss Each Other Clean. The new album has received early praise, with NPR Music calling Beam “a songwriter versatile enough to pack huge ideas into simple arrangements and vice versa.”
Helping achieve Beam’s vision was a group of stellar musicians including Rob Burger, Steve Bernstein, Brian Blade, Curtis Fowlkes, Tony Garnier, Marika Hughes, Briggan Kraus, Maxim Moston, Tony Scherr, Doug Wieselman, Kenny Wolleson and Anja Wood. Burger (Tin Hat Trio) has worked with Beam intermittently through the years and handled arrangements for strings and horns on Ghost on Ghost. For the album’s cover, Beam, who is also a visual artist, chose an image from the series “Private Views” by noted photographer Barbara Crane.
