Iron & Wine and returning director J. Austin Wilson (“Call It Dreaming”) have delivered an official video for “Thomas County Law” from Beast Epic, his forthcoming album due out Friday August 25 on Sub Pop via Inertia Music.

The winsome and sly visual, which premiered via NPR Music, stars Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam as a preacher preparing for a funeral service.

NPR Music’s Stephen Thompson had this to say of the video (and the forthcoming album):  “Iron & Wine will release ‘Beast Epic’, a new album that scales back the densely arranged grandeur of recent records like ‘Ghost On Ghost‘ and ‘Kiss Each Other Clean‘. Though nowhere near as harrowingly spare as the bedroom recordings on which Beam first made his name, ‘Beast Epic’ still feels like a return to roots; to simple, unadorned, plainspoken warmth… Last month, Iron & Wine released the album’s first single, “Call It Dreaming”. Now comes a follow-up: “Thomas County Law”, a gently rendered mid-tempo ballad whose accompanying video finds Beam decorating a church and giving a eulogy for what turns out to be his own (unattended) funeral.”

Iron & Wine’s Beast Epic was written and produced by Sam Beam. It was recorded and engineered by Tom Schick at The Loft in Chicago in July 2016 and January 2017, and mastered by Richard Dodd in Nashville, Tennessee. The musicians who played on the album include longtime Iron & Wine collaborators Rob Burger (keys), Joe Adamik (percussion, drums), and Jim Becker (guitar, banjo, violin, mandolin), along with bassist Sebastian Steinberg (Soul Coughing and Fiona Apple), and Chicagoan Teddy Rankin Parker (cello).
