Band Of Horses’ Ben Bridwell and Iron And Wine team up for covers album

As reported by Billboard, Band Of Horses lead singer Ben Bridwell and Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam (he’s really the only person in Iron & Wine, though) are teaming up to talk about their feelings, grow manly beards, and—most importantly—record an album of cover songs. Titled Sing Into My Mouth, the album features Beam and Bridwell putting their own beard-powered spin on songs from The Talking Heads, Bonnie Raitt, Pete Seeger, Sade, and more. No previews of the songs have been released yet, but the album is supposed to be available this summer. However, the full tracklist is below, so you could just pass the time by listening to the original versions and picturing everyone with flannel shirts and beards. Also, things are going to be pretty awkward the next time Beam and Bridwell run into Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and they have to explain why he wasn’t invited to be a part of this.

Anyway, here’s the tracklist:

1. “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)” (Talking Heads)

2. “Done This One Before” (Ronnie Lane)

3. “Any Day Woman” (Bonnie Raitt)

4. “You Know Me More Than I Know” (John Cale)

5. “Bulletproof Soul” (Sade)

6. “There’s No Way Out of Here” (Unicorn)

7. “God Knows (You Gotta Give to Get)” (El Perro del Mar)

8. “The Straight and Narrow” (Spiritualized)

9. “Magnolia” (JJ Cale)

10. “Am I a Good Man?” (Them Two)

11. “Ab’s Song” (Marshall Tucker Band)

12. “Coyote, My Little Brother” (Pete Seeger)
