    Watch: Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet Share "CNN Predicts a Monster Storm" from "Landfall"

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet have shared a fourth track from their forthcoming album, Landfall: the opening track, "CNN Predicts a Monster Storm." The video for the song premiered via The Quietus, which spoke with Anderson and Kronos's David Harrington for an interview about this "first recording collaboration between two of contemporary music’s most renowned figures." The track can be downloaded now with pre-orders of the album on iTunes and in the Nonesuch Store, along with three previously released album tracks. Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print autographed by Anderson. The new song can also be heard on Apple Music and Spotify, and in the video below.

    Landfall, which was inspired by Anderson’s experience of Hurricane Sandy, is the first collaboration between the iconic storyteller/musician and the groundbreaking string quartet, who perform together on the recording. Landfall juxtaposes lush electronics and strings with Anderson’s powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars. The Washington Post calls it "riveting, gorgeous."

    The acclaimed trio Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out now. The record includes eleven originals plus interpretations of songs by Ted Lucas and Michael Hurley, and a traditional hymn—"intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," says the New York Times. Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. The trio will be at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 24 and will tour the US this fall.
