Listen: Iron & Wine share new track ‘Calm On The Valley,’ announce unearthed album from archives

'Archive Series Volume No.5: Tallahassee' drops on May 7

Sam Beam has announced an unearthed Iron & Wine album, Archive Series Volume No.5: Tallahassee, which he recorded in the late ’90s, dating back before his debut album, The Creek Drank The Cradle. Today, he’s previewed the collection with “Calm On The Valley.”

Archive Series Volume No.5: Tallahassee is part of Beam’s ongoing Archive Series, but this is the first installment since 2017. These tracks were recorded in 1998 and 1999, while Beam was a student at Florida State University’s College of Motion Picture Arts.

“Early music file-sharers have long claimed ownership of a number of early Iron & Wine recordings, many that still have yet to be officially released,” a press release explains. “While this record will not quite correct all the wrongs of the early days of the internet, it will fill in many of the blanks for long-time fans.”
