    When Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit shared the rollicking new cut “It’s a Shame” last month alongside a slew of headlining tour dates, an album announcement didn’t feel far behind. Now, the band has detailed their fourth proper LP, Ruins, the follow-up to 2014’s Stay Gold. It’s due out January 19th through Columbia Records.

    Produced by Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Laura Veirs), the album was recorded in Portland, Oregon where the duo collaborated with the likes of R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, Wilco’s Glenn Kotche, and Midlake’s McKenzie Smith.

    A second new song accompanies the announcement: “Postcard” is another slice of sepia-toned Americana, this one evoking the amiable twang of Dolly Parton. Listen to it below.


    See the album’s artwork and tracklist below.
