    AfroCubism Video Premieres on NPR's All Songs Considered; Album Available for Pre-Order in Nonesuch Store

    AfroCubism, the long-awaited collaboration between Cuban and Malian musicians that was meant to take place when the Buena Vista Social Club was born instead, is due out on World Circuit / Nonesuch Records on October 19 and is now available for pre-order in the US and Canada in the Nonesuch Store.

    As with almost all orders in the Nonesuch Store, AfroCubism includes the complete album as high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s available on release day; also included is the exclusive Nonesuch Store bonus track, "El Manisero." Reserve your copy now.

    And in the mean time, there is a new video that takes viewers behind the scenes of the AfroCubism project and into the studio to hear from the musicians who made it all happen. NPR's All Songs Considered blog posted the video earlier today. "What I've heard of Afrocubism so far sounds pretty awesome," says All Songs Considered producer Robin Hilton, who says the video "gives a good taste of what to expect." Read more at npr.org.

    You can watch the video below via the Nonesuch YouTube channel and at nonesuch.com/media.

    British rising country soul star Yola's debut solo album, Walk Through Fire, produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, will be released February 22, 2019, on Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound label, distributed by Nonesuch Records. "The moment I met Yola I was impressed," says Auerbach. "Her spirit fills the room, just like her voice … she has the ability to sing in a full roar or barely a whisper and that is a true gift." Videos for two songs from the album, "Faraway Look" and "Ride Out in the Country," can be seen here.
