Iron & Wine, the stage and recording name for American singer-songwriter SAM BEAM, performed a track from his new album 'Kiss Each Other Clean' on the CONAN O BRIEN show on Monday (24th January 2011). The 36-year-old took to the stage backed by a seven-piece band to perform the track 'Tree By The River', which was warmly received by the live studio audience.
'Kiss Each Other Clean' hit shelves in the US yesterday (25th January 2011) but the album has been available to stream on Conan's website 'Team Coco' since last week. A message on the site announced, "We here at TeamCoco.com are fans of awesome music - so when our good friend Iron & Wine wanted to collaborate, we jumped at the chance!" To celebrate the record's release, IRON & WINE is set to play a show at 'The Wiltern' in Los Angeles tonight (26th January 2011) before performing at the Radio City Music Hall in New York on Saturday.
Kiss Each Other Clean' is IRON AND WINE's fourth studio album. His last record, 2007's 'The Shepherd's Dog' debuted at number 24 on the US Billboard 200 chart selling 32,000 copies in it first week. A song from the album, 'Flightless Bird, American Mouth' was used in the movie 'Twilight' starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
