  • On True Stories (1986), his sole foray into feature-film directing, David Byrne was inspired by tabloid headlines to make an ode to the extraordinariness of ordinary American life, using his songs to stitch together pop iconography, voodoo rituals, and a singular variety show. This comprehensive soundtrack contains 23 songs, collected for the first time in one package, in film sequence. "I always imagined that the music written for True Stories should be heard as it is in the film," says Byrne. "It makes the most sense this way. Me singing the song that was written for John Goodman's character always felt weird to me. It was written for that character, not for me." Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an exclusive, limited-edition 12" print of a production photo taken by Byrne.

  • This special edition First Collection 2006–2009, available from Nonesuch in Europe and Sub Pop elsewhere, honors the tenth anniversary of Fleet Foxes' eponymous debut album. It features content spanning the early days of the band's career, including the self-titled full-length debut album on 12" vinyl, as well as the Sun Giant EP on 10" vinyl, and the first vinyl releases of both the very limited-edition, previously only self-released The Fleet Foxes EP on 10", and B-sides & Rarities on 10". In addition to its musical offerings, the special edition features a 32-page booklet with show flyers, lyrics, and artwork from the period. Also available in a four-CD set.

    Mountain Man's Nonesuch debut album, Magic Ship—a reflection on the joys, follies, and oddities of existence—is the band's second album. The songs on Magic Ship distill eight years of experience since their 2010 debut album, Made the Harbor, of sights seen, pleasures had, feelings hurt, forgiveness extended. The New York Times describes them as "intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death." "Mountain Man share that rare, innate gift of almost supernatural harmonizing," says NPR. "Hauntingly beautiful." Bundle options include an exclusive Magic Ship tote bag.

  • The second in a series of musical installments from singer Mandy Patinkin and pianist/producer Thomas Bartlett, Diary: April/May 2018 was recorded by the two musicians in Bartlett's NYC studio. The fourteen tracks of this Diary entry include two songs written by Patinkin himself plus songs by Randy Newman, Laurie Anderson, Bob Dylan, Patty Griffin, Harry Nilsson, Tom Waits, Lyle Lovett, Taylor Mac, Keren Ann, and Stephen Sondheim.

  • Composer, pianist, and singer Gabriel Kahane's Nonesuch debut album, Book of Travelers is a musical travelogue about the looping railway journey across the US he embarked upon the day after the 2016 US election and the people he met along the way. "Exquisitely crafted," says Uncut. "Musically fascinating and hauntingly empathetic." "Extraordinary," says the San Francisco Chronicle; "vivid and wholly original." Rolling Stone calls it a "stunning portrait of a singular moment in America."

  • Peter Pears: Ceremonial Music Remixes includes reimagined versions of two tracks from Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman) and Nico Muhly's 2018 album, Peter Pears: Balinese Ceremonial Music, from E*vax (of Ratatat) and Kid Koala. Drowned in Sound called the album "exceptional ... simultaneously tense and light, dramatic and calming, an originality which few albums can fully lay claim to."

    Punch Brothers return with All Ashore, their first self-produced album. "It's a meditation on committed relationships in the present day," says Chris Thile, "particularly in the present climate." The Independent calls it "an album of rich instrumentation and understated beauty that reveals deeper nuances on each and every listen." The Boston Globe says it's "a deeply meaningful and downright gorgeous record."

  • Guatemalan-born singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno and American musician, songwriter, arranger, and producer Van Dyke Parks offer their heartfelt interpretation of Trinidadian artist David Rudder's 1998 song "The Immigrants." "It's a powerful message of courage, love and faith that resonates to this day and should be spread wide across the entire nation and beyond," says Moreno. "We all share the same dreams, and we came here to fulfill them and to prosper, together." Parks adds: "'The Immigrants' has a political punch, while also being joyful and underscoring how our culture is refreshed by immigrants like Gaby, and how those who arrive here can really redefine, and help build America." Proceeds will be donated to CARECEN, which empowers Central Americans and all immigrants by defending human and civil rights, working for social and economic justice, and promoting cultural diversity.
