Music News - The New Pornographers / Iron & Wine

Pitchfork is reporting 2 pretty interesting news items today . First, the next studio album from The New Pornographers is shaping up to hit stores in the late summer. Tentatively to be called Challengers, the record will in fact once again feature long time Porn-stars Neko Case and Dan Bejar, in addition to primary member Carl (A.C.) Newman. Last year was a busy one for Case and Bejar, what with Case’s Fox Confessor Brings The Flood and Destroyer’s Rubies (#1 on Pop Headwound’s Top 10 of 2006) both serving to considerably further their respective careers. Read the full interview with Newman by clicking here.

Also noteworthy, the first single from Iron & Wine’s upcoming release, The Shepard’s Dog, will be “Boy With A Coin”. It will come out in July via Sub Pop, and will be backed by two exclusive b-sides.
