Iron and Wine: Popularity "Trapeze"

iron and wine around the well cover
Folk-friendly band Iron and Wine’s profile has grown recently after being hand picked by Kristen Stewart to close out the film adaptation of Twilight.  The epic track, “Flightless Bird, American Mouth”, from The Shepherd’s Dog, played in the final scene of the blockbuster film last fall and has continued to gain acclaim with the recent DVD release.  What better time for Sam Beam and company to release new music?

Iron and Wine is releasing Around the Well and 2 disc compilation of B-sides and rarities on May 19th.  The first single from this affair is the emotional farewell letter, “Trapeze Swinger”.  This songs clocks in at 9 1/2 minutes, but Beam’s hypnotic voice and poignant songwriting are worth every second.
