Iron & Wine: Claim Your Ghost

The lead track on Iron & Wine’s brand new Beast Epic album, “Claim Your Ghost” wins listeners from the start. It’s been four years since Iron & Wine, namely Sam Beam and collaborators, has released new music. There’s much here for longtime fans to love—beauty and sadness mingling throughout, lyrics of thoughtful consideration, empowered arrangements—but a renewed simplicity defines the album from start to finish. “Call it Dreaming” was the first single, but “Claim Your Ghost” is our choice because it’s where this new emotional adventure begins.
