Sam Beam + Jesca Hoop Team Up for New Album

BeamHoop

Sam Beam, the mastermind behind Iron and Wine, has teamed up with singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop for a lovely little album titled Love Letter for Fire.

Recorded, produced and mixed by Tucker Martine, the duet album features appearances by Wilco’s Glenn Kotche on drums and percussion, Robert Burger on keys, Eyvind Kang on violin and viola, Sebastian Steinberg on bass, and Edward Rankin-Parker on cello.

At times haunting, with strings cutting out sharp melodies, and at times as pretty as a clear day, Love Letter for Fire coaxes new aspects of each artist to the surface and, in the end, stands on its own.

Here’s the first single, “Every Songbird Says.”
