    Watch: Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet Share New "Landfall" Video

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet have shared two new tracks from their forthcoming album, Landfall: "The Water Rises" and "Our Street Is a Black River." Both can be downloaded now with pre-orders of the album on iTunes and in the Nonesuch Store, along with the previously released album track "We Learn to Speak Yet Another Language." Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print autographed by Anderson. The new songs 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."
