On April 15, Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) and Jesca Hoop will release a collaborative LP titled Love Letter For Fire, out on CD/LP/cassette and digital download via Sub Pop Records. The record is self-described as “a collection of songs steeped in the tradition of the male/female duet, where love—in its many forms—takes center stage.”

Written throughout 2014, produced, recorded and mixed by Tucker Martine (Modest Mouse, The Decemberists) at Flora Recording & Playback in Portland, Oregon, and mastered by Richard Dodd in Nashville, the record will feature 13 new tracks, including previously released single “Every Songbird Says,” which you can stream below.

Upon release, the band will start their United States headlining tour, beginning in May and ending in June, across the United States and Canada with support from Marlon Williams.
