Watch: Iron and Wine Performs on WFUV's "Words and Music from Studio A"
Iron and Wine recently concluded the first leg of its tour featuring music from the new album Ghost on Ghost, released last month on Nonesuch Records and 4AD. Singer-songwriter Sam Beam and his band made stops along the US East Coast, including New York City's Beacon Theatre. While in New York last month, Beam and the band stopped by public radio station WFUV, 90.7 FM, to discuss and perform a few songs from the album—"Grace for Saints and Ramblers," "Low Light Buddy of Mine," and "The Desert Babbler"— for Words and Music from Studio A. You can watch three musical performances below and listen to the complete show at wfuv.org.
Iron and Wine's Ghost on Ghost tour heads next to Europe for an eight-night run, starting at Barbican Hall in London on May 28 and including a second Barbican show and stops in Dublin, Manchester, Paris, Utrecht, Brussels, and Berlin. The next leg of the tour in the United States and Canada has also been announced for September; tickets are on sale now. For details and ticket links, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
