Opis wydawcy:
Iron & Wine powraca! Po czterech latach od poprzedniego krążka, Sam Beam opublikował właśnie „Beast Epic” – zbiór jedenastu nowych autorskich kompozycji. Fani indie-folku będą w siódmym niebie – w podwójnej przenośni. Bo to jest to dokładnie siódmy album Amerykanina.

„Beast Epic” w całości zawiera utwory napisane i wyprodukowane przez Sama Beama. Nagrań dokonał Tom Schick w studio Loft w Chicago w lipcu 2016 i styczniu 2017 roku. Za mastering odpowiadał Richard Dodd (Nashville, Tennessee). W albumie udział także wzięli: Rob Burger (klawisze), Joe Adamik (perkusja), and Jim Becker (gitary, banjo, skrzypce, mandolina), muzyk Fiony Apple - Sebastian Steinberg (bas), i Teddy Rankin Parker (wiolonczela).

"Zawsze byłem i będę zafascynowany tym, w jaki sposób czas odciska swoje piętno na naszych ciałach i w naszych sercach" – mówi Sam o nowym krążku Iron & Wine - "Diabelskie koło ciągle się kręci, a my się zbliżamy lub wracamy do pewnego zupełnie nieoczekiwanego punktu lub dobrze nam znanego. Rytuał przejścia to obraz, który wciąż do mnie powraca, bo czuję, że ciągle znajdujemy się w jakimś procesie przemiany. „Beast Epic” jest nasycony taką wizją, a wszystko to zostało przefiltrowane przez nowe życiowe doświadczenia. Utwory na płycie tworzą kolekcję historii o pięknie i cierpieniu związanym z dojrzewaniem, kiedy jesteśmy już dorośli".

„Beast Epic” jest dostępny na dwóch nośnikach: CD i Vinyl 1LP

Editor's info:
The well of our pride runneth over as we are finally able to announce: Iron & Wine will release Beast Epic - his first new material in over four years - and it will be available worldwide through Sub Pop beginning August 25th. (!) The longplayer features eleven new compositions that share a kinship with his earlier material.

Iron & Wine’s principal songwriter, Sam Beam had a few words to say about the album:

“I must confess that I’ve always shied away from album introductions citing the usual “dancing to architecture” cop out. Speaking to their own work is uncomfortable for many artists, but I’ve made a new album called Beast Epic which is important to me and I wanted to take a moment to talk about why. I’ve been releasing music for about fifteen years now and I feel very blessed to have put out five other full lengths, many EPs and singles, a few collaborations with people much more talented than myself, and made contributions to numerous movie scores and soundtracks. This is my sixth collection of new Iron & Wine material and I’m happy to say that it’s my fourth for Sub Pop Records.

It’s a warm and serendipitous time to be reuniting with my Seattle friends because I feel there’s a certain kinship between this new collection of songs and my earliest material, which Sub Pop was kind enough to release. In hindsight, both The Creek Drank the Cradle (2002) and Our Endless Numbered Days (2004) epitomize a reflective and confessional songwriting style (although done with my own ferocious commitment to understatement, of course.) I have been and always will be fascinated by the way time asserts itself on our bodies and our hearts. The ferris wheel keeps spinning and we’re constantly approaching, leaving or returning to something totally unexpected or startlingly familiar. The rite of passage is an image I’ve returned to often because I feel we’re all constantly in some stage of transition. Beast Epic is saturated with this idea but in a different way simply because each time I return to the theme I’ve collected new experiences to draw from. Where the older songs painted a picture of youth moving wide-eyed into adulthood’s violent pleasures and disappointments, this collection speaks to the beauty and pain of growing up after you’ve already grown up. For me, that experience has been more generous in its gifts and darker in its tragedies.

The sound of Beast Epic harks back to previous work, in a way, as well. By employing the old discipline of recording everything live and doing minimal overdubbing, I feel like it wears both its achievements and its imperfections on its sleeve. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed experimenting with different genres, sonics and songwriting styles and all that traveled distance is evident in the feel and the arrangements here, but the muscles seemed to have relaxed and been allowed to effortlessly do what they do best.

I’ve been fortunate to get to play with some very talented musicians over the years who are both uniquely intuitive and also expressive in exciting ways. This group was no different. We spent about two weeks recording and mixing but mostly laughing at The Loft in Chicago.

To be honest, I’ve named this record BEAST EPIC mostly because it sounds really fucking cool! However, with that said and perhaps to be completely honest, “a story where animals talk and act like people” sounds like the perfect description for the life of any of us. If not that, then it’s at least perfect for any group of songs I’ve ever tried to make. I hope you enjoy it.”

Beast Epic was written and produced by Sam Beam. It was recorded and engineered by Tom Schick at the Loft in Chicago in July 2016 and January 2017, and mastered by Richard Dodd in Nashville, Tennessee.
