On May 19, 2009 Iron and Wine will issue Around the Well (Sub Pop), a 2-CD/3-LP collection of rare tracks ranging from out-of-print to never-before-released. In support of Around the Well Iron and Wine will be performing ten intimate shows in five cities. Each individual show will be wholly unique, as Iron and Wine will turn the set list over to the fans to create. In addition, Iron and Wine have begun work on the follow-up to The Shepherds Dog and plan to release a new album in spring, 2010.
Around the Well
The tracks collected on Around the Well span from Iron and Wines earliest sessions which yielded the bands debut (2002s The Creek Drank the Cradle) through material recorded for 2007s The Shepherds Dog. The double-disc collection is broken up into two sections. The first half is an assortment of hushed home recordings, unedited and raw, and the second highlights moments captured in the confines of proper studios with the help of other musicians, friends and engineers. The albums title comes from a line in the song The Trapeze Swinger,?? a fan favorite which was written for and included in the movie In Good Company. Three more songs written and recorded for the film finally make their appearance here as well: Belated Promise Ring,?? God Made the Automobile?? and Homeward, These Shoes.?? Around the Well also brings together hard to find covers such as The Flaming Lips Waitin for a Superman?? and New Orders Love Vigilantes,?? along with one of Iron and Wines earliest originals, Sacred Vision,?? which appeared on a compilation for Sound Collector magazine.

Iron & Wine's previously unreleased song "Stolen Houses (Die)" is included on the upcoming Dark Was The Night compilation. We're very pleased to be in the company of such great artists, supporting this worthwhile cause.
From 4AD.com ::
Dark Was The Night will be released on February 16th (Worldwide) and 17th (North America) 2009. Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National produced the album, with John Carlin (founder of the Red Hot Organization) its executive producer. A total of thirty-two exclusive tracks have been recorded for the compilation, which will be available as a double cd, triple vinyl and download album, with profits benefitting the Red Hot Organization - an international charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for HIV and AIDS.
