With the release of the second track, “Midnight Sun,” from the new collaborative album between Calexico and Iron and Wine  “Years to Burn” comes a new video featuring animation by Jonny Sanders and illustrations by Sam Beam. The illustrations came out of over 100 paintings Beam did while creating the album cover.

Calexico’s lead singer Joey Burns said of the process behind the new song:

Sam sent some demos the week before we met to record the album. Based on the feel of those demos I wrote the song “Midnight Sun” the day I got to Nashville. I arrived at our rental house the day before everyone else and was happy to find a piano, old pump organ and guitar to do some writing. I was up late and came up with a tune that would bridge both bands’ worlds. I started with a drone in F# and was curious as to where it would take me.
