Following up 2012’s rustic The Lion’s Roar, Swedish folk sisters First Aid Kit have announced that their follow-up, Stay Gold, will be released on June 10 via Columbia. Like the former, this album was produced by Mike Mogis and features the Omaha Symphony Orchestra with arrangements by composer Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, Broken Bells, Rilo Kiley).
 
With My Silver Lining, these Swedes ride the line of country and pop with rolling acoustic guitars and lush orchestral accompaniment that sends a message of hopefulness in pursuing that light at the end of the tunnel. You should definitely add this song to your finals week playlist to get you through those late nights of cramming.
