    Listen: Camille Talks "OUÏ" with PRI's "The World"
    Patrick Messina

    French singer and composer Camille, whose new album, OUÏ, was released in the United States on Nonesuch last week, was a guest on the public radio show The World. She spoke with host Marco Werman about the interplay between the words and music in her songs (you can read the lyrics and their English translations here), the vibrations that emanate from them, the impact of the fourteenth-century monastery where she recorded the album, Yoko Ono, the current state of the world, and more. You can listen to interview below.

    Debuting at #1 in the French charts, OUÏ was called "a celebration of a vocal instrument as dexterous as it is delicate, with sounds given new shapes and word play at a premium" by the UK’s Evening Standard. "A Parisian pop genius," says Pitchfork. "OUÏ is rich with brilliant, funny ideas about conception, nature, and identity, with plenty of pure pleasure hits for non-Francophones."

    To pick up a copy of OUÏ, head to your local record store, iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, and listen now on Spotify and Apple Music.

    In honor of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch puppeteer Caroll Spinney's retirement from Sesame Street after nearly 50 years, we revisit Kronos Quartet's trip to that beloved street in 1987 to talk with Big Bird about the string quartet and making music. "His open and kind-hearted view of the world and how we should treat each other is something we should forever aspire to," Kronos says of Spinney, and we concur.
