    Nonesuch Records is pleased to announce that it will release Gabriel Kahane's 8980: Book of Travelers later this year. The album's genesis began on the day after the 2016 presidential election, when Kahane embarked—with no cell phone or other internet-connected device—on a looping, 8,980-mile railway journey through the US. Over two weeks, he broke bread with dozens of strangers whose stories were woven into a song cycle that he premiered at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) earlier this year. More details about the album, including its release date, will be announced soon.

    Brad Mehldau's After Bach is due March 9, 2018, on Nonesuch. The album comprises the pianist/composer's recordings of selections from J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, each followed by a piece written by Mehldau and inspired by its WTC mate. "There have always been elements of Mehldau's style that recall Bach," writes Timo Andres in the liner note. "After Bach surveys their shared ground as keyboardists, improvisers, and composers, making implicit parallels explicit.” Pre-order After Bach for an instant download of the track "After Bach: Rondo," which can be heard here.
