    Watch: The Staves, yMusic Share Title Track to New Album, "The Way Is Read"

    The Staves and yMusic, whose new album, The Way Is Read, is due digitally on November 24 and on vinyl December 1, have released the title track to the album. You can watch the video below, listen on Spotify and Apple Music, and download it now, along with the previously released album track "Trouble on My Mind," when you pre-order the album on iTunes and the Nonesuch Store.

    After being commissioned in 2016 by Justin Vernon's Eaux Claires Festival to collaborate on a live performance piece, The Staves delved deep into New York City–based ensemble yMusic's catalogue of contemporary classical compositions to find pieces suited to their lyrics and vocals. While the Festival is known for bringing musicians together for one-off performances, this is the first time one of those partnerships has made the leap into a studio album. The LP was produced by Rob Moose and Jessica Staveley-Taylor and mixed and engineered by Brian Joseph at his studio, Hive, in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

    The two groups will come together live again at a series of special shows at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis on December 1 and 2, and they also will perform on public radio's A Prairie Home Companion from The Town Hall in New York City on December 16. The Staves will tour Australia and New Zealand in February in March, including two just-announced headline gigs in Brisbane and Melbourne and previously announced festival appearances at Sydney City Limits, Auckland City Limits, NZ Festival of the Arts in Wellington, and Perth International Arts Festival.

    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.
