    Rhiannon Giddens' debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, due out next Tuesday, is streaming in full all this week as an NPR First Listen. "It's a scrupulously selected, richly realized collection of songs," writes NPR's Ann Powers. "Though she didn't write most of these songs, Giddens owns them on Tomorrow Is My Turn ... Her voice—mobile, intelligent, ready to talk back to anyone's presumptions—is always at the center here, guiding the story. Let me be the first to say it: Today is Rhiannon Giddens' turn."

    Rhiannon Giddens is the subject of a feature profile in the New York Times. Her forthcoming solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, "is a showcase for Ms. Giddens’s glorious voice, which merges an opera singer’s detail and a deep connection to Southern roots," writes Times music critic Jon Pareles. "She can summon the power of a field holler, Celtic quavers, girlish innocence, bluesy sensuality, gospel exaltation or the pain of slavery. She can sing velvety, long-breathed phrases or rasp and yip like a singer from the backwoods long ago. For all her technical control, her voice is a perpetually soulful marvel." The album's producer, T Bone Burnett, tells Pareles she has “a pretty profound gift ... I’ve been doing this for 50 years, and I haven’t seen anything like it."

    Rhiannon Giddens has released a new song, her take on the Hank Cochran tune "She's Got You," made famous by Patsy Cline, from her forthcoming debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn. "Patsy Cline is of course the ultimate country singer, and one of the ultimate singers, period," says Giddens. "Hubby Jenkins and I recast this in a sort of old-timey R&B vibe." The track, says Okayplayer, which premiered it, is "buoyed by a slow dragging, burnt sugar bass and horn melody and her spot-on vocal." Listen to the song here and download it now when you pre-order the album.
