Iron & Wine will release Archive Series Volume No.5: Tallahassee Recordings via Sub Pop on May 7.
The album is a collection of recently unearthed recordings made by Sam Beam in the period 1998-9, three years before his official Iron & Wine debut, The Creek Drank The Cradle.
Its 11 songs were culled from a number of recordings that had been (mostly) forgotten by Beam himself but had been preserved by former roommate and one-time Iron & Wine member, EJ Holowicki. In addition to serving as both engineer and bassist, Holowicki also worked as archival producer in preparing the tracks for official release.
