[Listen] Iron & Wine – Walking Far From Home

By Will Oliver, November 29th 2010 — with 13 comments Stream

“Walking Far From Home” is the new single from successful folk act Iron & Wine. It was released as an exclusive Black Friday single and it leaked, to no ones surprise.

Similar to Sufjan, Sam Beam has reshaped his folk-rock sound. Sam is a fantastic songwriter, and he doesn’t stray too far from his sound. The electronic effects that he adds creates a dreamy atmosphere that will take you away from your world, leading your straight into his. I personally don’t think he departs too far from his old sound, but some fans may not know what to think of the change at first.

“Walking Far From Home” will be on Iron & Wine’s new album Kiss Each Other Clean, which is set for a release on January 25th via Warner Brothers. The 7″ includes two exclusive songs, “Summer In Savannah” & “Biting Your Tail”. It’s available to purchase from Amazon on November 30th.

Srs question: Is it considered a leak if it’s released, even if it’s a ‘special’ single, per say?

In other news, it’s goooooooood.


Better question is why this website can post what is clearly not a song the band wants posted. And er … um, miraculously, this site has the record before anyone else.


Actually “Will”, my question still kicks your question’s ass.

For the record (pun intended), this was available to a pretty wide market as of last Friday. The band is streaming it now. It’ll be on Amazon tomorrow for a whopping 99 cents.

In short, way to be a total dick and add to the discourse in an intelligent way.


Also, shit. Not “Will”, but “ThiefMcGee”.


Yeah, this new record is going to be a polarizing one. People will either hate it or love it. It’s definitely not mind-blowing, but it’s good. I liked it. If you have time, check out my review of it here.
