Calexico and Iron & Wine Share Video”Midnight Sun”

Calexico and Iron & Wine have just shared the gorgeous second single from their upcoming album, Years to Burn, out June 14, entitled “Midnight Sun.”  In “Midnight Sun,” Calexico’s Joey Burns and Sam Beam of Iron & Wine trade haunted-sounding verses over shimmering steel until the song devolves into a corrosive electric lead from Burns, like a dying siren. The video makes use of over 100 paintings Beam did for the creation of the new album’s cover. Working with animator Jonny Sanders, the video brings to life in a spirited and fun way, the many images of Burns, Beam and Calexico drummer John Convertino.
