  • The Staves, three sisters originally from Watford, England, make their Nonesuch debut with If I Was. The Justin Vernon-produced album was recorded at Vernon's studio near Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where he recorded his 2012 self-titled Bon Iver album. Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an instant download of the album tracks "Blood I Bled," "Black & White," and "Steady." The Sunday Times called the band's previous album "a debut of stellar beauty and hidden depths," while the Telegraph, in its four-star review, noted that the "graceful melodies reveal a supple strength and modernity."

  • Buena Vista Social Club’s Lost and Found is a collection of previously unreleased tracks from the Buena Vista all-star cast of Ibrahim Ferrer, Rubén González, Cachaíto López, Guajiro Mirabal, Eliades Ochoa, Omara Portuondo, and Compay Segundo—some recorded during the original album’s sessions in Havana, others from the years that followed. The studio tracks were recorded at the 1996 Egrem studio sessions in Havana and during a period of rich and prolific creativity stretching into the early 2000s. Lost and Found also features live recordings from the world tours of Buena Vista’s legendary veterans. Pre-orders include an instant download of the album track "Macusa."

  • Punch Brothers join forces with producer T Bone Burnett for The Phosphorescent Blues. On the album, the band examines modern life, or, as Chris Thile puts it, asks: "How do we cultivate beautiful, three-dimensional experiences with our fellow man in this day and age?” The CBC calls it "triumphant." The Herald Scotland says it's "a quite masterly collection from a quintet of virtuosi [that] deserves to be filed next to the best work of The Beach Boys, Big Star and Richard Thompson. It's that good." The two-LP, 140-gram vinyl release includes four additional tracks not available elsewhere.

  • Tigran Hamasyan's label debut, Mockroot, comprises new tracks written by Hamasyan, as well as his arrangements of traditional Armenian songs. Although trained as a classical and jazz musician, Hamasyan draws on a wide range of influences, including Armenian folk music, rock, electronica, poetry, and more. "There are many brilliant and perfectly finished young jazz pianists around," says the Telegraph, "but Hamasyan stands out because he has something important and urgent to say." "You will find it difficult if not impossible to get this disc out of your machine for quite a while," raves the Buffalo News. "Don’t count on getting it out of your head for a long while either."

  • Rhiannon Giddens—singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and founding member of Carolina Chocolate Drops—makes her solo recording debut with Tomorrow Is My Turn. The album, produced by T Bone Burnett, features a broad range of songs from genres as diverse as gospel, jazz, blues, and country, including works made famous by Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Odetta, and Nina Simone. The album "is a showcase for Ms. Giddens’s glorious voice," says the New York Times. "For all her technical control, her voice is a perpetually soulful marvel." "Gorgeous," exclaims the Daily Telegraph. "An exceptional record." Nonesuch Store CD orders and vinyl pre-orders include an exclusive autographed print for a limited time.

  • Rhiannon Giddens and Iron & Wine's Sam Beam perform the Bob Dylan tune "Forever Young," from the series finale of NBC's Parenthood. Giddens and Beam performed the track, produced by Joe Henry, at the show's Luncheonette recording studio during the show's final episode.
