Watch: Iron and Wine Performs at SXSW for KEXP
Iron and Wine, whose new album, Ghost on Ghost, was released earlier this week, hit the SXSW music conference in Austin last month, performing at several official showcases throughout the city. One such set was at the KEXP Stage at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop, where singer-songwriter Sam Beam performed solo acoustic takes on songs from the new album and more. You can now watch the SXSW performances of "Grace for Saints and Ramblers" and "Winter Prayers" from Ghost on Ghost below and watch the complete set at kexp.org.
To pick up a copy of Ghost on Ghost, which Uncut describes as "sublime ... a work of immense beauty and scale," head to your local retailer or to iTunes, Amazon, or the Nonesuch Store where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.
Iron and Wine launches a US tour featuring music from Ghost on Ghost at the Bottle Rock Napa Valley festival in Napa, California, on May 11, followed by a six-night East Coast run with special guests The Secret Sisters, making stops in Pittsburgh, New York City, Philadelphia, Richmond, Boston, and Portland.
