Listen to “Joy”

This is a good song for today. Iron and Wine just released the video for “Joy” on Friday; the song comes from Ghost on Ghost, which is out today.

“Deep inside the heart of this troubled mess/ There’s an itty bitty boy tugging hard at your hand,” Samuel Beam sings. “Born bitter as a lemon but you must understand/ that you are bringing me joy.”
