Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s just been announced that Iron & Wine will release his third full-length, The Shepherd’s Dog, later this year. But it being a holiday and all, he decided to get all romantic on us and give us an early present: on February 8, I&W’s Sam Beam played a solo show at the Pabst Theater and performed a whopping nine new songs. You can download them below. I’m not going to spoil them by writing anything lengthy, but I will say this: listen to the man sing.
