    Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell Featured on BBC Radio, TV; New Album Makes NPR's "Heavy Rotation"

    Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, whose new duets album, Old Yellow Moon, is due out on Nonesuch Records on February 26, have been selected for NPR's Heavy Rotation: 5 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing. To make it even more special, the folks at XPN2: Singer-Songwriter Radio in Philadelphia, a brand-new member of public radio, were asked "to share their favorite songs of their first two weeks on the planet," and they chose "Hanging Up My Heart," the opening track off the forthcoming album (a download of which is also included with album pre-orders in the Nonesuch Store).

    "Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell are both legends in the world of country and folk music," says XPN2 program director Bruce Warren. "Their new album of duets, Old Yellow Moon, sounds classic in every sense of musical accomplishment: from their gorgeous singing and inspiring studio performances to their excellent choice of material, including covers of songs by Roger Miller and Kris Kristofferson and originals by Crowell. It hearkens back to classic recordings like Harris' Elite Hotel and Crowell's Diamonds and Dirt, and brings the best out of the two veterans." Read more and download the track at npr.org.

    Harris and Crowell are currently in the UK, where the album is due out March 4. They were guests on BBC Radio 4's Loose Ends on Saturday evening to discuss Old Yellow Moon and perform a song off the album, "Dreaming My Dreams." You can listen again to the show at bbc.co.uk, where their segment begins at 31:48 minutes in. Yesterday morning, the pair began their day with an interview on BBC Breakfast—fans in the UK can watch again here—and yesterday afternoon they were interviewed live by BBC Radio 2's Simon Mayo, who also played two tracks from the album; listen to that at bbc.co.uk. Old Yellow Moon received its first UK play last Thursday night with BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris, who played the album track "Invitation to the Blues," written by Roger Miller; listen again at bbc.co.uk, where the song begins at 10:33 minutes in.

    To pre-order Old Yellow Moon, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include a print of Harris and Crowell autographed by the artists.

    In conjunction with The Criterion Collection’s special-edition DVD and Blu-ray release of David Byrne’s 1986 film True Stories, Nonesuch and Todomundo Records release a comprehensive soundtrack, collected for the first time in one package and in film sequence: True Stories, A Film by David Byrne: The Complete Soundtrack is due on vinyl LP, CD, and digital formats on November 23, 2018. Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an exclusive, limited-edition 12” print of a production photo taken by Byrne. "I always imagined that the music written for True Stories should be heard as it is in the film," says Byrne. "It makes the most sense this way. Me singing the song that was written for John Goodman’s character, Louis Fine, always felt weird to me. It was written for that character, not for me.”
