    Iron and Wine, aka singer-songwriter Sam Beam, spoke with New York Times writer James C. McKinley Jr. about the evolution of his songwriting, culminating in Iron and Wine's just-released fifth studio album, Ghost on Ghost.

    "Some of the tracks on the new LP are built over jazz rhythms and walking bass lines; others are constructed over funk beats," writes the Times' McKinley. "The songs feature Motown chord progressions with R&B horn lines, string parts and rich layered backup harmonies reminiscent of John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s late arrangements. One track, 'Lover’s Revolution,' is a conscious nod to Charles Mingus."
