First Aid Kit announce new album Stay Gold, stream “My Silver Lining”

on March 31, 2014, 10:54am

Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit will release their third album Stay Gold on June 10th via Columbia Records. The 10-track effort was produced by Bright Eyes collaborator Mike Mogis, who also helmed the boards for 2012’s The Lion’s Roar. The album also features the Omaha Symphony Orchestra and arrangements from composer Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, Broken Bells, Rilo Kiley).

As our first taste, First Aid Kit has unveiled lead single/album opener, “My Silver Lining”. Here, the sisters Söderberg further refine their blend of rootsy Americana, channeling their inner Johnny Cash over a mix of rumbling guitars and sweeping strings. While the orchestration lends a sense of grandiosity and romanticism, the siblings remain thoroughly connected to folk and country’s core of straight-ahead heartache and forlorn, even amid somewhat more optimistic fare.

Listen in below:
