    Robert Plant's new album, lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar, is due out next week. But you don't need to wait till then to hear it. Fans worldwide can hear the new music ahead of its release, and stream the entire album in full. "More than anything, the album waxes gorgeous about music itself," writes NPR's Ann Powers in the NPR First Listen stream. Even with all of the sounds and experiences that have gone into the new album, she says, "No one of these songs sounds precisely like its source; that's the genius of this album. It lovingly layers elements in ways that mirror memory, creating new constructs from floating shards of the musical past."

    Punch Brothers are reaching out to fans to participate in the making of their next album. The group has put out the request for folks to sing a few lines on the new record "as kind of a meta reference to its theme," says band member Chris Thile. The lines are from a song called "Little Lights," for which Punch Brothers are looking to add "a mighty assembly of your individual Voice Memos and GarageBand sessions" to the studio recording.

    Robert Plant's new album, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, has already begun to receive rave reviews in the UK. The album has earned four stars from Q and Mojo and nine out of ten in UncutQ says "he’s produced his best solo album yet … a beautifully moving, soul-stirring, bravely genre-blurring album." Mojo, calling it "a rewarding, often touching listen," makes it Album of the Month, as does Uncut, which says it is "a record that deftly aligns the chakras of Plant’s storied career while also being a bold act of reinvention ... His uniqueness has never been more apparent."

    Nickel Creek have performed a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR's All Songs Considered, featuring four songs from the group's new album, A Dotted Line. "Nickel Creek was made to sing and play around a single microphone, so a Tiny Desk Concert seemed inevitable," says All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen. "The trio, backed here by bassist Mark Schatz, has no equal. Nickel Creek has been doing this on and off since its members were kids, and what blows me away is the comfort and ease with which they navigate their instruments. That skill, and the creative force behind it, is a joy and a thrill to witness." Watch it here.
