Iron & Wine to play Massachusetts in May

, Staff

Iron & Wine has announced plans for a handful of East Coast concerts this spring in support of his brand new album, Ghost on Ghost. The acclaimed singer-songwriter, born Sam Beam, will perform at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston on Friday, May 17. Tickets for the show, which will also feature openers The Secret Sisters, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through the venue’s box office and website for $36.50.

Ghost on Ghost, Iron & Wine’s fifth studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s Kiss Each Other Clean, will hit stores on April 16. Recorded in New York, the album was produced by Beam’s longtime associate Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Fruit Bats). Beam was supported by a group of musicians including Rob Burger, Steve Bernstein, Brian Blade, Curtis Fowlkes, Tony Garnier, Marika Hughes, Briggan Kraus, Maxim Moston, Tony Scherr, Doug Wieselman, Kenny Wolleson, and Anja Wood. Lead single “Lover’s Revolution” is streaming below.

For Ghost on Ghost, Beam sought to move from what he called the “anxious tension” of his two previous records. “This record felt like a reward to myself after the way I went about making the last few,” he said in a press release.
