    Listen: Olivia Chaney Talks Offa Rex with NPR's "Weekend Edition Sunday"
    Shervin Lainez

    Offa Rex, the new project from English singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney and The Decemberists, released its debut album, The Queen of Hearts, which NPR Music called "a match made in folk-rock heaven," on Nonesuch this past Friday. Chaney was on NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday yesterday to discuss the project, the origins of which can be traced to a tweet from The Decemberists' Colin Meloy. You can listen to Chaney's conversation with NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro, and even hear Chaney give an impromptu a cappella performance of an old Jewish hymn, below.

    Chaney and Meloy will be on BBC Radio 2's The Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe to discuss their coming together for the new album this Wednesday. You can hear it at bbc.co.uk.

    To pick up a copy of The Queen of Hearts, head to your local music shop, iTunes, Amazon, or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout, and listen to the album on Apple Music and Spotify.

    Offa Rex will tour this summer, starting this coming Sunday with a sold-out performance at The Aladdin in Portland, Oregon. For details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Punch Brothers have shared a video of their live performance of "Julep," a song from their 2015 album, The Phosphorescent Blues, at the Taft Theatre in Cincinnati, Ohio, last summer. You can watch it here. The video comes about a month before the band's return to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, not long after which the big US summer tour begins (and after that, a European autumn tour).
