Iron & Wine has returned with the announcement of his seventh studio album, Light Verse. He’s also shared the album’s first single, “You Never Know,” as well as a slew of 2024 headlining tour dates.
Light Verse marks Sam Beam’s first album in seven years as Iron & Wine, and will arrive on April 26th via Sub Pop. The album was produced by Beam in Los Angeles and features a 24-person orchestra on four of its 10 tracks. Also appearing on Light Verse is Fiona Apple, who lent vocals to the duet “All in Good Time.”
“You Never Know,” the first offering from Light Verse, begins with some signature finger-plucked guitar work from Beam before blooming into harmony-laden folk pop majesty. Throughout the track, Beam sings of a bastion of “coulds,” eventually landing on the idea that regardless of the twists and turns that life can take, you never know what the outcome will be. Stream the song below.
The announcement of Light Verse coincides with a 2024 Iron & Wine North American headlining tour, which begins this summer. After the tour’s opening date in Milwaukee on June 14th, Iron & Wine will spend the summer playing cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Brooklyn, and Toronto.
