    Listen: Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet's "Landfall" Streaming in Full As NPR First Listen
    Mark Allan

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's first collaboration, Landfall, is due out on Nonesuch next Friday, February 16. But you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full now as an NPR First Listen at npr.org/firstlisten.

    "Hurricane Sandy was a horrific natural disaster that no one would care to relive, except perhaps for the brilliant polymath Laurie Anderson," writes NPR's Tom Huizenga. In the new piece, "she doesn't revisit the storm so much as ruminate—sometimes with dry wit—on the idea of how we handle loss. With a dream-like blend of electronics, acoustic instruments, high-tech software and voice overs, she searches for meaning in the mystery of it all."

    Landfall is available to pre-order on iTunes and in the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of four tracks. Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print autographed by Anderson.
