First Aid Kit Announce Details Of An Itunes Session Release

Following a superbly assured performance at End of the Road festival on Sunday and being added to the 6 Music A-list with their new single 'Wolf', First Aid Kit will release an exclusive iTunes Session on 10th September

Recorded in New York, Sear Sound studio in July, the session includes eight tracks: four songs from their acclaimed second album 'The Lion's Roar'; one song each from their debut LP 'The Big Black and the Blue' and their debut EP 'Drunken Trees'; upcoming single 'Wolf', previously available only as an iTunes bonus track; and the only recorded version of their celebrated Patti Smith cover 'Dancing Barefoot', which has become a live favourite. Each album or EP track features a slightly restyled arrangement from the earlier recorded versions - highlighting sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg's sumptuous harmonies and stellar songwriting - and all are augmented by a full string section for the first time. 'The Lion's Roar' producer Mike Mogis plays on all songs and Conor Oberst reprises his guest verse on 'King of the World'.

First Aid Kit iTunes Session track listing:

1. Wolf

2. The Lion's Roar

3. Emmylou

4. Dancing Barefoot

5. Waltz For Richard

6. Blue

7. Our Own Pretty Ways

8. King of the World

First Aid Kit achieved another career highlight last week when they performed 'America' to a standing ovation from the one and only Paul Simon at the Polar Prize ceremony. Yet another poised performance from these incredibly talented sisters.

To continue their inexorable rise in 2012, they are releasing album highlight 'Wolf' as their new single on 16th September and will head back to the UK for their biggest headline dates thus far, calling at Shepherd's Bush Empire on 20th November.

Added to this, The Lion's Roar album will be lavishly re-packaged for release on 17 September with bountiful bonus material including DVD (on-the-road documentary and single videos), additional tracks, poster, a 20 page booklet and FAK guitar pick!

The album has sold 150,000 copies worldwide (30,000 in the UK alone) thus far and is fast becoming one of the biggest indie breakthrough success stories of 2012.

Having toured the world relentlessly since the album release and headlining such auspicious venues as the Irving Plaza in NYC & The Fillmore in San Francisco, First Aid Kit will round off the festival season by playing Bestival this weekend.

Thurs 6 Sept - Guildford Boiler Room

Fri 7 Sept - Bestival

Tue 20 Nov - London Shepherd's Bush Empire
