Listen: First Aid Kit’s lovely new song “Cedar Lane”

on May 06, 2014, 10:45am

First Aid Kit are set to release their third studio album Stay Gold on June 10th via Columbia Records. The forthcoming effort, which was produced by Bright Eyes collaborator Mike Mogis, features the Omaha Symphony Orchestra and arrangements from composer Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, Broken Bells, Rilo Kiley).

As they proved with lead single “My Silver Lining”, the Swedish folk duo can make twangy Americana music better than most Americans. Now, with their latest single “Cedar Lane”, Johanna and Klara Söderberg further make their case. Where it sheds the plucky, roots-rock of “My Silver Lining”, it adds gorgeous steel guitars, classic country melodies, and better showcases the sisters’ muscular vocal chords. Below, watch the song’s colorful accompanying video which was directed by Neil Krug.

Stay Gold Tracklist:
01. My Silver Lining
02. Master Pretender
03. Stay Gold
04. Cedar Lane
05. Shattered & Hollow
06. The Bell
07. Waitress Song
08. Fleeting One
09. Heaven Knows
10. A Long Time Ago

This record is going to be awesome. The live show should be rather epic as well.
