    Watch: Olivia Chaney Gives a Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Making of Her New Album, "Shelter"

    Olivia Chaney, whose new album, Shelter, was released last month, has shared a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album. She took filmmaker Gavin Elder to the rustic, 18th-century cottage in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors where she wrote the songs on the album to discuss writing there and later recording the album in New York City with producer Thomas Bartlett. You can take a look in the video below.

    Shelter is the Guardian's Folk Album of the Month. "As soon as Shelter begins, you fall into its warmly drawn, welcoming world," writes Jude Rodgers in the four-star review. "Chaney’s voice is effortless, clear and bright ... The ghosts of Sandy Denny’s early 1970s solo albums are never very far away, but what gleaming ghosts those are to carry with you." The Sunday Times' Clive Davis says: "If there’s a hint of Joni Mitchell, Chaney establishes her own voice from the outset ... Rare beauty."

    To pick up a copy of Shelter, head to your local record store, iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; it can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music

    Olivia Chaney will return to North America for a three-week tour, starting in Decatur, Georgia, on July 24. The tour includes headline shows in DC, Cambridge, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Portsmouth, Burlington, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, and San Francisco, plus sets as special guest of Patty Griffin on Long Island and Bruce Hornsby in Washington.

[which] showcases Yola's otherworldly vocals and compelling songwriting." McKenna concludes: "It's the work of an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come."

    David Byrne's Nonesuch Records debut album, Grown Backwards, first released on March 16, 2004, will make its vinyl debut almost 15 years later, on March 15, 2019. The double-vinyl edition is the original album plus six additional tracks, including a duet with Caetano Veloso on their song "Dreamworld." It's "one of Byrne's most rewarding experiments yet," said the Guardian. "It fits alongside the best of his career and adds another solid release to a solo catalog which will hopefully become more cherished in time," said Pitchfork in 2004. "In 20 years, as we straighten our faces with botulism, braces, and stem cells, the album will stand up." Pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
