    Watch: Daughter of Swords Shares "Fields of Gold" Lyric Video from Forthcoming Album, "Dawnbreaker"

    Daughter of Swords, aka Mountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, has shared a new song, "Fields of Gold," from her upcoming album, Dawnbreaker. You can watch the lyric video, which features drawings by Sauser-Monnig and animation by Robert Edridge-Waks, below. Stereogum, which premiered the video, says of the track: "It shimmers and shines like a ray of light, a true field of gold if you will."

    Of the song Sauser-Monnig says "'Fields of Gold' is a car song. It's about that beautiful sense of possibility you get when you're driving long distances and the facts of your life lift away enough to let you imagine parallel versions of your life playing out in all the unknown places you're moving through."

    Dawnbreaker is due June 28 on Nonesuch Records and is available to pre-order on iTunes and the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of the title track, "Fields of Gold," "Shining Woman," and "Gem"; Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print created and signed by Sauser-Monnig.

    Daughter of Swords was the special guest of Iron & Wine and Calexico at Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, last night. The tour continues with Mandolin Orange this week and more throughout the year. See below for details; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Yola spoke with NPR member station 88Nine Radio Milwaukee for its Yours Truly series of up-close artist interviews. She talks about meeting Mavis Staples—with whom she performs at Holiday Cheer for FUV in NYC next week—and surrounding herself with "golden people." "The environment that I've built for myself—it is so important to connect," she says. "Certainly you'll hear this from women far and wide that there are environments that don't let them self-actualize, and that was definitely No. 1, people that accepted me as I was." Watch it here.
