    Gabriel Kahane, now touring Europe with music from his album Book of Travelers, has released two new tracks digitally. "I wrote 'Little Love' as a looping study on guitar and always wanted to release a version that reflected the original concept," he says of the new “ruined lace edition” of that Book of Travelers track. "'Trophy Longhorns' appears as a solo piano tune in the staged version of Book of Travelers," he says of the other new track; "it didn't fit emotionally or aesthetically with the rest of the album, but I thought it should see the light of day."

    New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records release Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw’s Orange, performed by Attacca Quartet, on April 19, 2019. Orange, which features six of Shaw’s pieces for string quartet, is the first full-length album to exclusively feature her works and is the first release in a new partnership between the two record labels. The string quartet form "has existed for hundreds of years, but there's something, for me, beautiful and ritualistic about coming back to that form," says Shaw. "This album is a celebration of the simple, immediate, unadorned beauty of a natural, everyday, familiar thing." Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an instant download of the track "Plan & Elevation: IV. The Orangery" (a video for which may be seen here) and an exclusive print of a painting created and signed by Shaw and Attacca Quartet.
