First Aid Kit Announce New Album 'Stay Gold' And Stream New Single 'My Silver Lining' [Listen]

On 9th June 2014, Swedish duo First Aid Kit will make their Columbia Records debut with their third album 'Stay Gold'.

The band has also announced UK festival dates at Latitude and Green Man Festivals. More UK dates will be announced imminently.
 
With 'Stay Gold', First Aid Kit - sisters Klara and Johanna Soderberg - have honed their musical skills and blossomed as vivid storytellers in creating an ambitious 10-song collection. Recorded at ARC studios in Omaha and produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk), the duo also enlisted The Omaha Symphony Orchestra to play on the record, with arrangements by Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, Broken Bells, Rilo Kiley). They say of the recording process, "We took new directions and turns with the arrangements, building them up and creating more dynamics, yet always following where the songs wanted to go."

Drawing inspiration from sources such as Townes van Zandt's Our Mother The Mountain and Lee Hazlewood productions, 'My Silver Lining' features the duo's most sophisticated songwriting to date. They explain, "It's song about searching for a reason to keep on keeping on, to find the good that comes with the bad. We wanted to create a piece that was dark yet uplifting at the same time."
 
Hailing from a southern suburb of Stockholm, Klara and Johanna began composing songs as teenagers in 2007. Their heart-wrenching song 'Emmylou' fromThe Lion's Roar was chosen by Rolling Stone as a 'Single of the Year' in 2012. That year was an astonishing breakthrough that saw worldwide sales of over 250,000 and saw the album gain silver status in the UK with sales of 68K. They have performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, shared the stage with artists including Jack White, Lykke Li, and Bright Eyes, played the main stage at Glastonbury and rounded everything out by winning both the Nordic Music Prize and four Swedish Grammy's in 2013.
