    Listen: Mountain Man's "Magic Ship" Streaming in Full As NPR First Listen

    Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out next Friday, September 21, 2018, on Nonesuch Records (via Bella Union in Europe). But you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full till then as an NPR First Listen at npr.org/firstlisten.

    The new album is a reflection on the joys, follies, and oddities of existence. The songs on Magic Ship distill eight years of experience since their 2010 debut album, Made the Harbor, of sights seen, pleasures had, feelings hurt, forgiveness extended.

    "There's also a precision to these songs—both in harmony and duration—that lend them a sense of purpose," writes NPR's Otis Hart. "Magic Ship is most potent when heard in full, from beginning to end, ideally on a back porch or around a smoldering campfire."

    Read more of Hart's review and listen to the album now at npr.org/firstlisten.

    Magic Ship is available to pre-order on iTunes, the Mountain Man Store, and the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of the album tracks "Rang Tang Ring Toon," "Window" and "Stella." Additionally, all Nonesuch Store pre-orders include a limited-edition print signed by the band; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. Magic Ship will also be available at Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon.

    David Byrne's Nonesuch Records debut album, Grown Backwards, first released on March 16, 2004, will make its vinyl debut almost 15 years later, on March 15, 2019. The double-vinyl edition is the original album plus six additional tracks, including a duet with Caetano Veloso on their song "Dreamworld." It's "one of Byrne's most rewarding experiments yet," said the Guardian. "It fits alongside the best of his career and adds another solid release to a solo catalog which will hopefully become more cherished in time," said Pitchfork in 2004. "In 20 years, as we straighten our faces with botulism, braces, and stem cells, the album will stand up." Pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
