After more than three years without new music, Iron and Wine is prepping the release of its next album.
 
“Kiss Each Other Clean” will be out in January via Warner Bros., though no exact date has been set. The group – headed by Sam Beam – will likely be previewing new material on tour this fall.
 
No word yet on other vitals, including lineup and if producer Brian Deck is back on, well, deck to engineer. He helmed “The Shepherd’s Dog,” Iron & Wine’s last album, out in September 2007.
