    Shawn Colvin to Perform Record Release Show in NYC Broadcast Live on WFUV, Announces Tour Dates
    Michael Wilson

    Shawn Colvin, whose new album, All Fall Down, is due out June 5 on Nonesuch Records, will preview tracks from the album at New York City’s City Winery on June 4, one day prior to the album’s release. The show will be broadcast live on New York NPR member station WFUV, 90.7 FM. Fans in and outside of the New York metro area can enjoy the show online at wfuv.org. A consummate, natural and engaging performer, Colvin has a run of live shows in the lead up to and following the album’s release, including headlining shows, duo dates with Mary Chapin Carpenter, and shows as very special guest of Chris Isaak. The sets will include much-loved favorites as well as songs from the new album. See below for all of the currently scheduled tour dates; for additional information, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour. Check back for additional live dates to be added.

    All Fall Down is Colvin’s first album to be produced by her longtime friend and cohort Buddy Miller (Robert Plant, Solomon Burke). Recorded in Nashville, with a group of stellar musicians, this is Colvin’s first album of new material in six years. The release of All Fall Down comes on the same date as William Morrow/HarperCollins publishes her memoir, Diamond in the Rough, which insightfully and candidly looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows. The wit, lyricism, and empathy found in the book are traits that have long characterized Colvin’s songwriting and her live performances.

    For a limited time, Nonesuch Store pre-orders of both the album and the book will be autographed by Colvin. All album pre-orders also include an instant download of the title track, "All Fall Down." To reserve a copy, head to the Nonesuch Store now.

    Freedom Highway, Rhiannon Giddens' follow-up to her highly praised solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, is out now. It's a "rich collection," says NPR. "[H]ope comes back to life in Giddens' music." Pitchfork exclaims: "Rhiannon Giddens emerges as a peerless and powerful voice in roots music on her second solo album." The AP calls it "a rich tapestry with threads of blues, folk, gospel, soul, country and jazz ... rootsy and relevant, delivered with crystal-clear emotion and understated musical skill." Uncut names this "remarkably wise and timely new album" its Album of the Month. It earns four stars in American Songwriter, Irish Times ("a record for and of our times"), Observer, and Guardian, which calls it a "powerful and timely set."

    Rhiannon Giddens's five-song EP Factory Girl, first released on vinyl and digitally in late 2015, is now available on CD for the first time. The EP, which is up for Grammy Awards for Best American Roots Performance and Best Folk Album, is culled from the T Bone Burnett–produced sessions that yielded Giddens's acclaimed solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn. "It's a clutch of tunes that work together like the cards in a winning poker hand," the New York Times says of Factory Girl. "Her accompaniment … points to an ageless gold standard for American roots music." "Deftly curated, gorgeously sung," says NPR, "this EP is America." Her new album, Freedom Highway, is due February 24.
