‘Love Letter For Fire’ is a collaboration between Sam Beam (aka Iron And Wine) and singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop. The thirteen-track album features the singles ‘Every Songbird Says’ and ‘Valley Clouds’ and was written throughout 2014.

‘Love Letter For Fire’ features Beam and Hoop on vocals and guitar along with Robert Burger (keys), Eyvind Kang (violin, viola), Glenn Kotche (drums, percussion), Sebastian Steinberg (bass) and Edward Rankin-Parker (cello). The album also features a cover photo by Sam Beam.

As Iron And Wine, Sam Beam recorded for Sub Pop from 2002-2007, releasing a number of highly-acclaimed albums, singles and EPs, including ‘The Creek Drank The Cradle’ (2002), ‘Our Endless Numbered Days’ (2004), ‘Woman King’ (2005) and ‘The Shepherd’s Dog’ (2007). He went on to record for Warner Brothers, Nonesuch and 4AD. Recent releases include a covers album with Ben Bridwell from Band Of Horses and the two-volume ‘Archive Series’, which features material that preceded Sam’s Sub Pop-era recordings.

Jesca Hoop is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. She is an incredible live performer, known for her wonderfully-eclectic take on folk, rock and electronic music. Hoop has released five albums and two EPs, including the critic favourites ‘Hunting My Dress’ and ‘The House That Jack Built’. Jesca has toured and collaborated with the likes of Shearwater, Willy Mason, Blake Mills, Andrew Bird, The Ditty Bops, Guy Garvey and Elbow and has recorded for Bella Union and Vanguard.

‘Love Letter For Fire’ was produced, recorded and mixed by Tucker Martine (Modest Mouse, Decemberists, Neko Case) at Flora Recording & Playback in Portland, OR and mastered by Richard Dodd in Nashville, TN.

LP formats include digital download codes.
