Calexico and Iron & Wine’s Years to Burn Out Now

June 14, 2019

Release Years To Burn Behind The Scenes VideoWorld Tour Kicks Off June 18th

Today, Calexico and Iron & Wine released Years to Burn via City Slang in the UK/Europe and Sub Pop in the rest of the world. The work of Calexico’s Joey Burns and John Convertino and Sam Beam of Iron & Wine, the album is their first full length release and follows the critically acclaimed 2005 In the Reins EP.  Calexico and Iron & Wine will embark on an extensive North American, European, and UK tour, including a June 21st performance at ​Celebrate Brooklyn! festival at Prospect Park which will be live audio streamed by WFUV HERE​. 

Full list of tour dates below. In addition, the collective released Years to Burn Behind the Scenes featuring exclusive interviews with the band and their long friendship and spirit of collaboration.  Watch the short vignette HERE.

 Early praise for Years to Burn:
“In incorporating more voices and sources of ideas, Years to Burn feels most of all like the work of a complete, cohesive and individual band — a group of old friends who’ve gathered together to sing in a single voice…The new set finds Sam Beam, John Convertino, Joey Burns and members of the extended Calexico and Iron & Wine casts at their loose-limbed best… They all sound comfortable, collaborating deep in the pocket, but they’re still exploring.” – NPR

“The warm voice of singer-songwriter Sam Beam (who performs as Iron & Wine) guides the album’s lead track “Father Mountain,” which features an airy acoustic progression and uplifting harmonies from Calexico’s Joey Burns.” – Rolling Stone

Years to Burn proves that the time spent waiting on a second collaboration was worth it, but more meaningfully the album feels like the product of a cohesive unit rather than a tag team…Years to Burn rings with Beam’s soulful sobriety and Calexico’s gusty American Southwestern aesthetic, but the songwriting—again, primary credit goes to Beam—is the maypole around which the two bands braid their influences and proclivities. Unraveling one from the other is impossible.”  – Paste

Years to Burn, recorded with producer Matt Ross-Spang again marries vocalist and acoustic guitarist Sam Beam’s nimble lyricism with the incredible chops of Calexico nucleus Joey Burns and John Convertino. Together they make gorgeously sensual music”  – American Songwriter

Years to Burn is a beautiful sounding recording and for fans of Calexico and Iron & Wine’s initial collaborative release, this is a nice treat after all these years.” – Exclaim!
