Sam Beam (of Iron & Wine) and Jesca Hoop have announced details of their first ever UK and Ireland tour. The duo, who release their debut album Love Letter for Fire via Sub Pop on the 15 April, will play UK shows at the end of the summer, following on from their US tour starting in May.
The duo also recently shared the video for the track Valley Clouds from the album, a video telling the story of two outlaws of the karaoke circuit who deliver an over the top yet vulnerable performance of the song in a Chicago bar.
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)
