First Aid Kit Announces New LP ‘Ruins’ Due January 19th

Swedish duo First Aid Kit will release their highly anticipated album Ruins on January 19. Produced by Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Laura Veirs), the album was recorded in Portland, OR where the duo collaborated with amazing musicians — REM’s Peter Buck, Wilco’s Glenn Kotche, and Midlake’s McKenzie Smith. Ruins is available for pre-order now and includes the lead single “It’s A Shame”as well as “Postcard,” which can be heard below. See the full tracklisting below.

First Aid Kit says: “‘Postcard’ is one of the most traditional sounding songs we’ve ever written, and we wanted the production to mirror that. It’s not a resentful song, but more of a reaching out to a lover to wish them well on their journey in the midst of having to let them go.”

First Aid Kit will embark on a 2018 North American headline tour, kicking offJanuary 24 at the Fox Theatre in Oakland and continuing through a final night at New York City’s Beacon Theatre, with Van William supporting. Tickets are on sale now.
