Long time friends Sam Beam (better known under his stage name Iron & Wine) and Ben Bridwell from Band Of Horses finally get around to fulfilling their longtime wish of collaborating on a covers album with the release of Sing Into My Mouth earlier this week.

After having teased their audiences with renditions of Sade‘s “Bulletproof Soul” and Unicorn’s “No Way Out Of Here,” the folksy duo shared their Talking Heads cover “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” before finally releasing the album this 17th of July.

The indie pair’s rework on the Talking Heads’ ’80s classic features Beam and Bridwell’s warm harmonies melting off the gentle twangy guitar framework, rhythmic finger picking, and intimate percussion section – while not a contemporary folk fan, this one’s definitely a keeper in my book.

Take a listen down below, and if you like what you hear, you’ll be pretty stoked to give the rest of Sing Into My Mouth a listen.
