Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop – ‘Love Letter For Fire’

Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop

Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) and Jesca Hoop will be releasing Love Letter for Fire on April 15th. You can stream the album on NPR.

It’s been 15 years since Sam Beam released his first collection of whispery, low-definition solo recordings, recorded at home under the name Iron & Wine. Back then, it would have been difficult to imagine how many directions Beam’s music would travel: Iron & Wine’s records have evolved into lavish exercises in horn-laden Technicolor sprawl, while Beam has most recently set aside time for album-length collaborations with Band Of Horses’ Ben Bridwell and now singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop.

Hot Hot Heat

Hot Hot Heat will release their final album, Hot Hot Heat, on June 24th. You can stream the first single, “Kid Who Stays In The Picture,” below.

To be able to tour from 1999 to 2014 and play hundreds of shows a year was amazing. It changed all of our lives. It was the greatest experience I could ever imagine. I can relate to our fans and I respect our fans. They are the kind of people I’d hang out with. I’m proud of every single record, and of finding the ground between making it challenging and fresh, but also not being afraid to be entertaining and put on a crazy show. Every show we ever did was just a total high energy spectacle and that’s a great legacy to have.
