First Aid Kit have announced the full details of their fourth album Ruins which will be out on January 19th, it is the follow up to 2014’s acclaimed Stay Gold.

The Söderberg sisters announced their return at the end of September with ‘It’s A Shame’Ruins will come out on 19th January, and the band have shared another sample of the new record with ‘Postcard’.

The single leans heavily on the style of classic country ballads about a fading romance, with sliding guitar swells and ambling rhythms accented by sophisticated piano lines. The duo’s seamlessly blended harmonies bid a lover farewell: “Send me a postcard when you get to where you’re going / Send me a line to everything you’ve left behind.”

“‘Postcard’ is one of the most traditional-sounding songs we’ve ever written, and we wanted the production to mirror that,” the sisters have said . “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.”

The Swedish band’s Instagram reveals Ruins was produced by Tucker Martine and recorded at Flora Studios in Portland, Oregon. the girls collaborated with R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, Wilco’s Glenn Kotche and Midlake’s McKenzie Smith.
