    Shye Ben Tzur, Rajasthan Express Launch "Junun" European Tour, Open for Radiohead in Select Cities
    Shin Katan

    Composer/musician Shye Ben Tzur and the group of Indian musicians known as the Rajasthan Express will perform music from their 2015 album, Junun, on tour at festivals and venues across Europe, starting with two nights in Italy: at the Locus Festival in Bari tonight, and Ravenna Festival on Friday. Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood will join the group for both shows. Ben Tzur and the Rajasthan Express will open for Radiohead in select cities—Oslo, Stockholm, Florence, Dublin, and Manchester—in addition to their own Junun tour stops in Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, Turkey, and the UK, with shows in Gateshead, Bristol, Brighton, and London. See below for details and a trailer video for the tour; for all the latest tour information, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Jonny Greenwood had joined Shye Ben Tzur and the Rajasthan Express to record Junun in a makeshift studio inside the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, India. The album, made with Radiohead's producer Nigel Godrich, comprises Ben Tzur’s compositions, which feature devotional Sufi qawwal musicians who sing in Urdu as well as in his native Hebrew. The Times of London called it "one of the most inspired releases of the year ... Intriguing, sinuous, and essential listening."

    To pick up a copy of the album, head to iTunes, Amazon, or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.

    Olivia Chaney's new album, Shelter, is out now on Nonesuch. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, the album is eight original songs plus Chaney's takes on songs by Purcell and the Everly Brothers. She has also released a video for the track "House on a Hill," filmed at the rustic, 18th-century cottage in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors where she made the record. Watch it here. The Observer cites Chaney's "dazzling vocals" and calls Shelter "an elegant, luminous album." Uncut calls it "transcendent refuge from the storm." The Daily Mirror says it's "a triumph." Chaney performs in London on June 19; tickets are on sale now for her North American summer tour.
