Yeah can we find out if anything is coming with the vinyl? Otherwise I'll get it at the show and try to get Mr Beam to sign it.

Did we ever find out if anything is coming with the preorder? Is there any way to do so?

if there was something worthwhile (meaning bonus songs in some format) itd be noted on subpops website or the iron & wine website.  i highly doubt anything would be special with a preorder.

From Subpop's website...

Next stop on this party train is the long awaited new release from Iron and Wine, The Shepherd’s Dog, which will also be available on CD and LP. I really like Sam’s increased hair growth, both on the face and the head, and I think he’s really going to turn the heads of quite a few ladies with these new photos. (Is anybody even reading this?!) Think of Sam’s longer hair as a metaphor for The Shepherd’s Dog—it’s just like the old Sam but with more, and by “more” I mean instrumentation! This record has a lot more going on than previous Iron and Wine records but it’s still the good ol’ Sam you’ve come to know and love. Personally I think that this new one is a little more Fleetwood Mac-ish than the others, or am I the only one who thinks Sam Beam sounds like Lindsey Buckingham every once in a while? The Shepherd’s Dog comes with a bonus CD of two b-side tracks “Serpent Charmer” and “Arms of a Thief” as well as $1 off on subpop.com through street date as well as a generous helping of button and sticker.


Ok so here are my two questions
1) Does the LP come with a bonus 7" as well?
2) If I buy the LP at the concert rather than preorder online, will it have the aforementioned bonus 7"?

the only thing i see there is that its cheaper to buy it from subpop than anywhere else.  id assume every copy comes with the bonus or else they would specify.  and its most likely not a 7" for the vinyl version.  its a bonus CD, just like they said.  and the buttons and sticker are subpop specific (but they tend to come with every order anyway).

Here is the email that was just sent out from sub pop about the new album....


It feels pretty great to spread good news, doesn’t it? It does! Ready?  We just wanted to let you all know that the long-awaited new record from Iron & Wine will be out on September 25th has us positively jubilant! As if sharing that news isn’t bringing us more than our fair share of joy, gluttons that we are, we have still more for you: If you
pre-order the CD or LP through September
25th you’ll get it for $1 off our already low-price. We are clearly not in full possession of our faculties! Plus! (I’m beginning to feel like I’m hosting an infomercial…) We will include a bonus CD with two b-sides (the songs “Serpent Charmer” and “Arms of a Thief”), as well as the stickers and buttons for which we are internationally somewhat famous for giving away to you, dear friends who give us your money.

We are also very pleased to offer a very special, very limited set of three prints featuring art from The Shepherd’s Dog and the “Boy With a Coin” single. Prints of paintings by Sam Beam, these three posters come in a hand-numbered, silk-screened cardboard sleeve. Are you ready for the proverbial cherry on top? One of the posters in each set is autographed by this same Sam Beam his self! Only 400 will ever exist! Buy now!


Here’s some info on the new record…

2005’s Woman King distinguished itself from previous Iron and Wine records with a deepening integration of spiraling, dense opuses with intimate confessionals and with The Shepherd’s Dog this integration is complete. Recorded by Sam Beam with the assistance of longtime producer Brian Deck and engineer Colin Studebaker, The Shepherd’s Dog succeeds in accomplishing a cathartic recasting of the artist’s intentions. The arrangements here are kaleidoscopic and rich. “White Tooth Man” rocks with a desperate, menacing intensity while “Boy with a Coin,” the album’s first single, is darkly playful with a handclap hook tumbling under its cascading melody. The whole album breathes. Its seductive rhythms percolate and undulate, from the Psych-Bhangra-redux of “Pagan Angel and a Borrowed Car” to the album’s last dance—a waltz—”Flightless Bird, American Mouth.” Compositionally, it is Iron and Wine’s most ambitious and accomplished recording to date. It’s
  also the most satisfying.
