    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.

    The acclaimed trio Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out now. The record includes eleven originals plus interpretations of songs by Ted Lucas and Michael Hurley, and a traditional hymn—"intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," says the New York Times. Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. The trio will be at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 24 and will tour the US this fall.
