First Aid Kit have announced they will release a new album called Stay Gold, the followup to 2012's The Lion's Roar, on June 10 via Columbia Records.
First Aid Kit have also announced a North American tour this spring, followed by European festivals this summer. 05-22 Portland, OR - Wonder Ballroom05-23 Vancouver, British Columbia - Vogue Theater05-24 George, WA - Sasquatch!
Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Soderberg have been consistently winning hearts with their beautiful, country-influenced folk music and their shiny, swooshing hair since they appeared on Youtube doing Fleet Foxes covers back in 2008.
So it is amid a certain level of anticipation that the humble duo unleash their third longplayer, Stay Gold. Recorded at ARC studios in Omaha, once again with producer by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk), this is their Columbia Records debut.
Undoubtedly one of the releases of the year so far, Stay Gold is a record to play loud on long, sunkissed roadtrips. Third studio effort represents the Seattle outfit like you’ve never heard them before. At the end of July folk rock converged in Central Park for a great triple bill featuring Dawes, First Aid Kit and Andy Shauf. Shauf kicked things off, sharing tracks from his sophomore album The Bearer of Bad News, which he released in January via Tender Loving Empire. First Aid Kit, the Swedish folk duo (and sisters) of Klara and Johanna Soderberg, are as appropriate as any for a set at Newport Folk Festival.
Although disappointing not to get the full Soderberg sister effect, First Aid Kit powered through the set and still delivered a beautiful performance.
First Aid Kit are gearing up for the release of new album Stay Gold, which Columbia Records is releasing on June 10.
Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara Soderberg, who you know better as First Aid Kit, will return later this year with a new album called Stay Gold. After years of wondering what I was missing, I finally decided to make the trip to the Newport Folk Festival this year. I mean, really, what other festivals can you see people enjoying music while sitting on folding chairs? All jokes aside, the environment is basically a music festival heaven, full of positive energy and love from every corner. Below, I’ve posted a list of all the performances we saw over the weekend, which you can click through to find the individual recap and photo galleries of.


One by one we got a variety of special guests sharing covers of classic Dylan tunes, sometimes alone, sometimes joined by each others company. It was an unforgettable set of collaboration and celebration, one that we will never see in the same way ever again. This weekend I’ll be making my first ever journey to Rhode Island for the Newport Folk Festival.
I’ve heard nothing but great things from friends who have gone, who have called the festival one of the best out there, and a very relaxing festival experience.
The release was produced by Bright Eyes producer Mike Mogis and features arrangements from Nate Walcott, who's worked with Bright Eyes, Broken Bells, and Rilo Kiley. So rapid has been First Aid Kit’s ascent that they were soon playing the main stage at Glastonbury and selling-out countless gigs at salubrious venues such as Sydney Opera House, while releasing two critically-acclaimed albums along the way.
Joyfully though, through the production, the record retains that feeling of a country band playing live. Throw an arm high out of the car window and allow the wind to blow through your fingers while you sing along to these honest, soaring, heartfelt songs. It was produced by Bright Eyes collaborator Mike Mogis and also features the Omaha Symphony Orchestra and arrangements from composer Nate Walcott (Broken Bells, Rilo Kiley).
His heartbreaking approach to songwriting would probably be somewhat better suited in a tiny venue indoors, but he still won me over with a lovely set of songs both smart and delicate.
Unfortunately, Johanna was unable to contribute her vocals due to voice problems, leaving Klara to carry the full vocal load.
I was hit hard with surprise when I learned that it was those same two girls who went on to become First Aid Kit, now well on their way as a successful folk duo. It’s a breathtaking journey through country inspired vocals over gorgeous strings that will take your breath away.
The lineup, carefully curated with respect to the well beloved genre of folk rock, was pitch perfect at every point of the weekend, with special guests such as My Morning Jacket and James Taylor keeping us on the toes.
You can also find some of our favorites photos from the weekend, along with a list of the top 10 sets we saw at the festival, as tough as that was to make. The performance served as a special tribute to the 50th anniversary of Bob Dylan’s legendary 1965 set at the festival where he went electric. Listen to the first single, "My Silver Lining", up top, and check out a trailer for the album (directed by Neil Krug), as well as the tracklist, below.


Goosebump-inducing strings and those trademark vocal harmonies tell us in no uncertain terms that we are in safe hands here. This is an album of strong, vivid stories, played out with a brand of country folk which nods to American influences from the past while still sounding new and exciting. Heaven Knows bounces along like the most fun hoedown ever, before A Long Time Ago ends the record on a melancholic note with harmonies lamenting a failed relationship. Such is the dexterity of the songwriting and so vast is this album’s landscape of emotion that it can soundtrack times of heartbroken fragility as well as those chest-beating moments when you feel like you can take on the entire world single-handed. We always felt like, we kept it really simple, because there are only three people on stage, we wanted to not go too big, or do too complicated things. He’s recently signed to Anti- Records, a sure sign that exciting things are on the way. I’ve been to almost all of the major festivals in the East Coast, and I have to say, Newport Folk Festival is as good as they get.
The entire weekend I was there I didn’t see any go pros, selfie sticks, flower crowns, or vintage NBA jerseys. Anything can happen at Newport Folk Festival, which is why I will make sure I find myself there every weekend at the end of the July from now on (as long as they’ll have us back). After getting special sets from My Morning Jacket (who also served as Roger Waters’ backing band) and James Taylor, expectations were pretty damn high. Guests included: Gillian Welch, David Rawlings, Deer Tick, Dawes, Klara Soderberg of First Aid Kit, Blake Mills, Hozier, Willie Watson, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Al Kooper, and Robyn Hitchcock. I mean, Mike Mogis, who we’ve gotten to know so well as a friend, and his studio, and also the way he works – he’s just an incredible producer. It doesn’t feel like a giant event or major festival, but rather a large community coming together to enjoy music.
