Watch New Calexico and Iron & Wine Video For Gorgeous Single “Midnight Sun”

Years to Burn is out June 14th on Sub Pop Records.

Today, Calexico and Iron & Wine share the gorgeous second single from their upcoming album, Years to Burnentitled “Midnight Sun.” In “Midnight Sun,” Calexico’s Joey Burns and Sam Beam of Iron & Wine trade haunted-sounding verses over shimmering steel until the song devolves into a corrosive electric lead from Burns, like a dying siren. The video makes use of over 100 paintings Beam did for the creation of the new album’s cover. Working with animator Jonny Sanders, the video brings to life in a spirited and fun way, the many images of BurnsBeam and Calexico drummer John Convertino. Watch the video HERE then playlist it on YouTube - Spotify  - Apple Music.
 
Years to Burn is their first full–length album together and will be available June 14th via City Slang in the UK/Europe and Sub Pop in the rest of the world. Of the track, Joey Burns says “Sam sent some demos the week before we met to record the album. Based on the feel of those demos I wrote the song “Midnight Sun” the day I got to Nashville. I arrived at our rental house the day before everyone else and was happy to find a piano, old pump organ and guitar to do some writing. I was up late and came up with a tune that would bridge both bands’ worlds. I started with a drone in F# and was curious as to where it would take me.”
 
Calexico and Iron & Wine previously shared the lead single off of the album called “Father Mountain”.
