With their first ever collaborative album, Sing Into My Mouth, now confirmed for a July 17th release on Black Cricket/Brown Records via Caroline, longtime friends Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses and Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam have announced their first headline dates in support of the record. The headline engagements flesh out an itinerary featuring previously announced appearances at the Newport Folk, Osheaga (Montreal) and MoPop (Detroit) festivals.

Additionally, Sam and Ben will appear together on TV for the first time tonight, for the televised debut of a song from Sing Into My Mouth on the Late Show With David Letterman.
As of today Sing Into My Mouth can be pre-ordered at iTunes. All pre-orders will receive instant grat downloads of the record’s versions of Sade’s “Bullet Proof Soul” (which can also be streamed HERE) and Unicorn’s “No Way Out of Here” (streaming HERE). Today also marks the reveal of Sing Into My Mouth’s cover art, “Let’s Go For A Beer” by acclaimed artist Todd Bienvenu, whose work has been shown in numerous New York galleries including Life on Mars, Centotto, Valentine, Novella, Outlet, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Sideshow and Ethan Pettit.
Recorded last summer at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC, Sing Into My Mouth is a loving homage to 12 songs that have had indelible influence on both of its creators. Classics interpreted on Sing Into My Mouth range from the familiar—Talking Heads’ “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody),” and El Perro del Mar’s “God Knows (You Gotta Give to Get)” (the original having recently been featured on HBO’s GIRLS)—to deep cuts such as Them Two’s “Am I a Good Man?” (a frequent feature of Band of Horses’ live set) and “No Way Out of Here” originally recorded by ‘70s UK act Unicorn but better known as the lead single from David Gilmour of Pink Floyd’s 1978 solo debut.
