    Rhiannon Giddens's latest album, there is no Other, made with multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, is due May 3 on Nonesuch. Produced by Joe Henry and recorded over five days in Dublin, there is no Other is at once a condemnation of "othering" and a celebration of the spread of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience. Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an instant download of the track "I'm on My Way" (a video for which can be seen here) and an exclusive, limited-edition autographed print. Giddens and Turrisi will tour later this year.

    Jeremy Denk was on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday to discuss his new album, c. 1300–c. 2000. "It's kind of an epic poem of human accomplishment and different ways of seeing the world through music," he says. "So as the centuries unfold, there's periods of impasse, you know, where how do you go on after Beethoven or how do you go on after Bach? What do you do next? How do you start fresh but still build on the past?" Denk performs at Wigmore Hall in London tonight and Saturday and can be heard on BBC Radio 3's Lunchtime Concert today and In Tune on Wednesday.
