Yes, I know it was a mere two weeks ago that I posted a new Iron and Wine song, "Boy With a Coin," from the band's next LP, Shepherd's Dog. But I was so tickled to learn that you guys like Iron and Wine too that I just had to share another track that recently surfaced on the Internet. Called "Resurrection Fern," this song will also appear on the new album coming out Sept. 25.
The newly leaked track reminds me a little bit of "The Trapeze Singer," a stellar song that Iron and Wine contributed to the In Good Company soundtrack. Like "Boy With a Coin," "Resurrection Fern" — which you can listen to here — leans heavily on the pedal steel, and the music has a sort of sandy softness that suggests bittersweet beach combing. Check it out and tell me which track you like better.
