Sam Beam of Iron & Wine, and Joey Burns and John Convertino of Calexico have announced a new collaboration. Years to Burn will be released 14th June via City Slang and you can hear the first track Father Mountain below.

The trio first collaborated on 2005's In the Reins EP and will head out on an extensive European tour later this year, see dates below.

Sam Beam had this to say, “Life is hard. Awesome. And scary as shit. But it can lift you up if you let it. These are the things Joey and I write about now. And the title can encapsulate a lot of things. ‘Years to Burn’ could mean you’re cocky, you’ve got it made. Or, our life is ours to burn, to be inspired. Or you’re burned by life, brutalized. It’s an ambiguous title, because life is complicated. Let’s not talk like teenagers about love, desire, pain, ‘cause we’re not teenagers. And that’s not a bad thing.”

Joey Burns added, “This project had to find the right time. We’re all different people than we were in 2004, and music helps to bridge some of the gaps. For all the things going on in our world and in each of our lives, this connection, this friendship, this love that we have—this album is a vehicle for that bond. It’s a chance to see where we’re at, take stock and be there for our friends.”
