    Yola's debut solo album, Walk Through Fire, out next Friday, February 22, on Easy Eye Sound, is streaming in full all week as an NPR First Listen. Yola's "sonic palette, which spans country, folk, classic soul and '70s-era Britpop; her emotive songwriting, which oscillates between vulnerability and chest-pounding empowerment; and her truly powerful voice," says NPR Music's Brittney McKenna, "abounds on Walk Through Fire, ... [which] showcases Yola's otherworldly vocals and compelling songwriting." McKenna concludes: "It's the work of an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come."

    David Byrne's Nonesuch Records debut album, Grown Backwards, first released on March 16, 2004, will make its vinyl debut almost 15 years later, on March 15, 2019. The double-vinyl edition is the original album plus six additional tracks, including a duet with Caetano Veloso on their song "Dreamworld." It's "one of Byrne's most rewarding experiments yet," said the Guardian. "It fits alongside the best of his career and adds another solid release to a solo catalog which will hopefully become more cherished in time," said Pitchfork in 2004. "In 20 years, as we straighten our faces with botulism, braces, and stem cells, the album will stand up." Pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.

Artist Spotlight

  • Lake Street Dive's Free Yourself Up is, in many ways, the band's most intimate and collaborative record. The band worked as a tightly knit unit to craft the ten songs on Free Yourself Up and self-produced the album in Nashville with engineer Dan Knobler. "Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself," says the band, "no matter what's going wrong."

  • Pianist Jeremy Denk's new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, presents a centuries-long story of constantly emerging possibilities and styles of musical expression, an evolution drawn in a single arc by the music of twenty-four different composers, from Guillaume de Machaut to György Ligeti. The Telegraph says: "Quite exhilarating."

  • Punch Brothers return with All Ashore, their first self-produced album. "It's a meditation on committed relationships in the present day," says Chris Thile, "particularly in the present climate." The Independent calls it "an album of rich instrumentation and understated beauty that reveals deeper nuances on each and every listen." The Boston Globe says it's "a deeply meaningful and downright gorgeous record."

  • David Byrne's album American Utopia morphed during the writing and recording process, beginning with Brian Eno and growing to include collaboration with producer Rodaidh McDonald and contributors Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never), Jam City, Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), Jack Peñate, and others.

  • Nonesuch releases the vinyl edition of Jonny Greenwood's score to Paul Thomas Anderson's film There Will Be Blood, following their collaborations on Phantom Thread, The Master, and Inherent Vice. Nonesuch also released his score for Norwegian Wood; his album with Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki; Junun, his album with Shye Ben Tzur and the Rajasthan Express; and his recording of Steve Reich's Electric Counterpoint.
