    Watch: The Staves, yMusic Perform "The Way Is Read" Live at Walker Art Center

    The English trio The Staves and NYC–based ensemble yMusic joined forces to create The Way Is Read, a twelve-song album stemming from their 2016 collaboration at Justin Vernon's Eaux Claires Festival, released late last year on Nonesuch Records. To celebrate the album's release, the musicians performed a number of sets together at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis in December. You can now watch their performance of the album's title track from the Walker below.

    "A wonderful album," the Sunday Times of London exclaimed in its review of The Way Is Read. "The fusion of the siblings interweaving harmonies and yMusic’s sonic chattering results in music that is equal parts Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell, Philip Glass and the Penguin Café Orchestra."

    To pick up a copy of The Way Is Read, head to iTunes and the Nonesuch Store, where vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout, and listen on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Chris Thile gave a nod to his Nonesuch label mate David Byrne when he performed the Talking Heads' tune "(Nothing But) Flowers" on Live From Here last weekend, along with special guests Maggie Rogers, Sarah Jarosz, Vulfpeck, and Punch Brothers banjoist Noam Pikelny. Watch it here. Caetano Veloso offered his own take on the song on his 2004 album, A Foreign Sound, and again, this time with Byrne, on their 2012 album, Live at Carnegie Hall.
