Calexico Release New Song ‘Harness the Wind’

    Calexico have released a new song, ‘Harness the Wind’, lifted from their forthcoming album El Mirador. The track features backing vocals from longtime collaborator Sam Beam of Iron & Wine, and you can check it out below.

    “When we recorded ‘Harness the Wind’ it felt like we tapped into a spark of bright light and positivity,” Calexico’s Joey Burns said in a statement. “Everything fell together quickly and naturally. With the shiny electric guitar weaving in and out of John and Sergio’s propelling drums and bass, the song always had a vibe that stood out from the other songs. We sent the tracks to Sam Beam to add his vocals on the chorus which made the tune float even more. It’s a song about hope and sharing compassion to fellow travelers and dreamers who are trying to find their way.”

    El Mirador is out April 8 via City Slang. Calexico previously unveiled the album’s title track.
