    Watch: Randy Newman Performs on "A Prairie Home Companion" with Chris Thile
    A Prairie Home Companion

    Randy Newman was a guest on the public radio show A Prairie Home Companion, hosted by fellow Nonesuch artist Chris Thile, broadcast live from the show’s home base, the Fitzgerald Theater in Saint Paul, Minnesota, this past Saturday. Newman performed three songs from his new album, Dark Matter—"Putin," "Sonny Boy," and "She Chose Me"—and was joined by Thile and the house band to perform two of his classic tunes, "It's Money That I Love" and "You've Got a Friend in Me." You can watch most below and listen to the complete episode at prairiehome.org.

    Dark Matter, Newman's first album of new material in nine years, was released on Nonesuch in August. Produced by long-time Newman collaborators Mitchell Froom, Lenny Waronker, and David Boucher, the album includes songs about Vladimir Putin, the Kennedy brothers, Sonny Boy Williamson, science vs. religion, love and loss, and more. NPR says Newman "remains first and foremost a craftsman of song, capable of telling ordinary stories in ways no one quite has before."

    Chris Thile's new album, Thanks for Listening, a collection of new studio recordings of songs originally written as Songs of the Week on A Prairie Home Companion, is due December 8 and is available to pre-order in the Nonesuch Store.

    In honor of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch puppeteer Caroll Spinney's retirement from Sesame Street after nearly 50 years, we revisit Kronos Quartet's trip to that beloved street in 1987 to talk with Big Bird about the string quartet and making music. "His open and kind-hearted view of the world and how we should treat each other is something we should forever aspire to," Kronos says of Spinney, and we concur.
