During their studio session for KCRW, the Swedish sisters behind First Aid Kit not only floored us with their gorgeous melodies, but also gave us a sneak peak of songs from their new album The Lion's Roar, which comes out early next year.

First Aid Kit has been singing "Emmylou" while on tour with Bright Eyes (often with Mike Mogis joining in), but we were treated to the song's radio premiere here. Elsewhere, "Hard Believer" — a highlight of the sisters' debut — captures their delicate voices and harmonies perfectly.
