First Aid Kit Announce The Lion’s Roar LP, ft. Bright Eyes

First Aid Kit Lion's RoarOver the weekend, we prepared for First Aid Kit’s forthcoming LP by giving the Swedish folk duo’s recent Patti Smith tribute its due, but now comes the big announcement: On January 24, Wichita Records will unleash Klara and Johanna Söderberg’s sophomore effort, The Lion’s Roar, featuring production by Bright Eyes’ Mike Mogis as well as guest performances from the Omaha troupe’s other two official members: Conor Oberst and multi-instrumentalist Nate Walcott.

If you’re unfamiliar with First Aid Kit’s work thus far, I’d recommend their debut album’s single here. Otherwise, behold the album cover above and a trailer for the new set, which includes footage from Mogis’ ARC Studios, along with a live clip of one new tune below. *Update: Stream the title track here.
