Iron & Wine Share Official Video For “All In Good Time”

Light Verse is the new ten-track Iron & Wine album that features many highlights but none brighter than the Fiona Apple duet  “All in Good Time” which has been embraced by fans of both artists along with radio and critics.
Its official video, which is being shared today, translates the narrative of our two protagonists in the song through the eyes of a couple finding love in cinema and dance, with the help of some mischievous kids upending their day. It’s Singing In The Rain meets The Breakfast Club.
The “All In Good Time” video was filmed at The Pickwick Theater in Park Ridge, Illinois, and is directed by Jamie Fleischel.
The “All in Good Time” video is being released ahead of the North American leg of Iron & Wine’s previously announced Light Verse headlining tour, which begins this Friday, June 14th in Milwaukee at the Pabst Theatre and currently runs through Saturday, August 24th in Nashville, TN at The Ryman.  
Iron & Wine will be joined each night by the Emmy Award-winning performance collective, design studio, and film/video production company Manual Cinema. Founded in Chicago in 2010 by Drew Dir, Sarah Fornace, Ben Kauffman, Julia Miller, and Kyle Vegter, Manual Cinema combines handmade shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques, and innovative sound and music to create immersive stories for stage and screen.
Manual Cinema will perform live shadow puppetry and handmade animations alongside the band, creating a visual world that will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for fans.
Iron & Wine will then take the Light Verse tour to the UK and EU this fall, which begins October 22nd in Belfast, Ireland at Mandela Hall and ends November 15th in Antwerp, Belgium at De Roma. Support acts for the North American dates will be Ken Pomeroy, Amythyst Kiah, Rosali, and Sunny War, and in the UK and EU will come from Lizzie No.

Produced by the band’s principal singer-songwriter Sam Beam, Light Verse was made in the city of Angels with David Way at the helm, and joining Beam were some of the area’s finest musicians - David Garza, Sebastian Steinberg, Griffin Goldsmith, Paul Cartwright, Elizabeth Goodfellow, Kyle Crane and Tyler Chester - helping craft what is easily the band’s most playful and adventurous record since The Shepherd’s Dog.   
Light Verse marks the first full-length release in over seven years, and today, Iron & Wine is also sharing a “Making of/Behind the Scenes” short film. The typically guarded Beam discusses how the album came to be with studio footage and an exclusive interview.  Watch the making of Light Verse here.
Light Verse featuring the highlights “You Never Know,” “All In Good Time (feat. Fiona Apple),”  “Anyone’s Game,” and “Sweet Talk,”  is now available CD/LP/digitally worldwide from Sub Pop.
Iron & Wine’s Who Can See Forever soundtrack is also available from Sub Pop. The documentary concert film, which has seen sold-out screenings in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Denver, will platform to streaming services later in the year.

Praise for Iron & Wine Light Verse:

“A collection of songs bursting with surprises, reflecting the optimism of the album’s title, and a songwriter rejuvenated.” 8/10 - Uncut
“Both harmonically and melodically, Light Verse is more expansive, yet its arrangements are tighter. No longer the lone troubadour, Beam is backed by a group of LA musicians whose expert subtlety bolsters Beam’s magnetic quietude—even when Hollywood strings swell or the accompaniment reaches near cacophony.” 8.6/10 - PASTE
“My favorite moments on the album are where you hear those studio dynamics, where the quiet erupts into this chamber ensemble piece with these big shifting movements… it can go from everything from somber to nearly euphoric in its run, and I love that about it.” New Music Friday - NPR Music
“Beam has done this kind of thing before, but he seems to be digging a little deeper lyrically here, while crafting arrangements that are truly lush and lovely, better than any on previous Iron & Wine albums. That’s a high bar, but he soars over it with plenty of room to spare, and in the end Light Verse turns out to be one of the most enjoyable, varied, and well-crafted of the band’s records.” ★★★★ - All Music
“Even the good times will end eventually. That idea gestures toward the bittersweet irony of this fine late-career album: All the years have pulled Beam’s teeth, but they have also sharpened his pen.” Pitchfork
“It’s magnificent… It starts hushed and intimate (You Never Know), then as the band gradually comes in, it takes on a beautiful lushness throughout. Highlights include the lovely harmonies on Tears That Don’t Matter and All in Good Time, a soulful, churchy duet with Fiona Apple.” ★★★★ - MOJO
“Gorgeous… Iron & Wine proves he still has much to say in a hypnotic record full of lush production, highlighting the warmth and timelessness of his vocals.” 8/10 - CLASH
“Stunning… an album that straddles Iron & Wine’s earlier, stripped-down work and his later, more layered tunes. The gorgeous Sweet Talk and All in Good Time are particularly reminiscent of the former, while Tears That Don’t Matter is Beam at his most dynamically majestic.” ★★★★ - Record Collector
“Quirky yet profound, playful but often deeply moving… The ten tracks on Light Verse glow with the a rejuvenated joy and infectious creative energy.”  8/10 - The Line of Best Fit
“This time Beam worked alongside a handful of Los Angeles-based musicians and producer Dave Way (John Doe, Macy Gray) in his Laurel Canyon studio, and the bones of the songs on Light Verse are both looser and more freely experimental, often conjuring up a more ramshackle version of the layered psych-pop elements of 2007’s The Shepherd’s Dog.” No Depression
