First Aid Kit Stream ‘Stay Gold’ In Full

first aid kit

Ever since my first listen through 2012’s The Lion’s Roar, I knew that First Aid Kit‘s next release would be one of my most anticipated of whichever year it was to come out. Upon hearing Stay Gold‘s first single back in March, that preconceived anticipation felt all the more warranted.

Here we are a week ahead of the official release of Stay Gold and the Swedish sister duo are streaming it in its entirety over at NPR. As we previously reported, the album was produced by Bright Eyes multi-instrumentalist Mike Mogis and features massive arrangements from the Omaha Symphony Orchestra and Nate Walcott, another Bright Eyes member and all-around instrumental talent. If you’re a fan of FAK’s usual folky pop goodness then you should appreciate the progression the two show on Stay Gold, with that same lovable country sound and sweet vocal melodies, this time with maybe even more depth and a little bit of candor in the lyrics. “I always thought that you’d be here, but shit gets fucked up and people just disappear.”

Stay Gold is out on June 10 via Columbia Records. Pre-orders are still available here.
