    With Carnival Under Way, Nonesuch Set to Release Caetano Veloso's Latin Grammy-Winning "Zii e Zie" in March

    Today is Fat Tuesday, which means much cause for celebration, from New Orleans to Brazil. As revelers "laissez les bons temps roulez" for Mardi Gras and samba through the streets of Rio for Carnival, Nonesuch marks the occasion by introducing Brazilian legend Caetano Veloso's 41st album, zii e zie, now available for pre-order in the Nonesuch Store. The record, released last year in South America and Europe, has already earned Veloso a 2009 Latin Grammy for Best Singer-Songwriter Album. To pre-order your copy now, visit the Nonesuch Store.

    The Times of London's Clive Davis recently declared, “The Brazilian master remains in a league of his own,” and gave the new album four stars. The Guardian gives the album four stars as well, with reviewer Robin Denselow calling the songs "intimate and surprising, with sudden bursts of electric guitar transforming the easy-going ‘Falso Leblon,’ and handclaps and funk guitar lines matched against the laid-back vocals on ‘A Cor Amarela.’ Best of all, there's the half-spoken ‘A Base de Guantánamo,’ which sounds like a classic and angry protest song even if you can't speak Portuguese.”

    Veloso returns to the United States in April for six performances, with dates in New York City, Washington, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Miami. For more information, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Olivia Chaney's new album, Shelter, is out now on Nonesuch. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, the album is eight original songs plus Chaney's takes on songs by Purcell and the Everly Brothers. She has also released a video for the track "House on a Hill," filmed at the rustic, 18th-century cottage in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors where she wrote the record. Watch it here. The Observer cites Chaney's "dazzling vocals" and calls Shelter "an elegant, luminous album." Uncut calls it "transcendent refuge from the storm." The Daily Mirror says it's "a triumph." Chaney performs in London on June 19; tickets are on sale now for her North American summer tour.
