  • The four-LP box set The Randy Newman Songbook marks the first vinyl release of the Songbook series—solo recordings of songs from throughout Newman's five-decade career. The first two volumes are joined by 16 additional songs from a new third volume, along with five bonus tracks, in a new, thematic sequencing, to create this complete Songbook set. The Associated Press has said: "Few singer-songwriters could inject more new life into solo piano versions of their work than Randy Newman." Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an instant download of "Guilty" and an exclusive, limited-edition autographed print.

  • This third volume in the Randy Newman Songbook series, featuring solo recordings of songs from throughout Newman's five-decade career ("a peerless canon," says Uncut), includes 16 tunes, like "Short People," "Mama Told Me Not to Come," "I Love L.A.," and "You've Got a Friend in Me." The album was produced by Mitchell Froom and Newman's lifelong friend and colleague Lenny Waronker. Pre-orders include in instant download of the album track "Guilty."

  • Sleeping In A Car, a three-song EP from The Staves, is the follow-up to the English trio's acclaimed 2015 Nonesuch debut If I Was. The EP was recorded at Justin Vernon's April Base studio in Eau Claire, WI, and at Urchin Studios in London. "These songs reflect the transient nature of travelling," says the trio. "Fleeting moments, like a slide show—reflections in car windows, streetlights passing in rhythm, stolen phone calls, late nights. Feelings of displacement and a disconnect—living in some sort of alternate state of reality. But underneath it all is the feeling of adventure and making your own rules and how dizzying and freeing that can be."

  • Violence and Orchids, the vinyl edition of Michael Daves's Orchids and Violence, comprises two versions each of traditional bluegrass tunes: acoustic takes performed with a band of roots-music innovators—bassist Mike Bub, violinist Brittany Haas, mandolinist Sarah Jarosz, and Punch Brothers banjoist Noam Pikelny—paired with electric rock renditions of the same songs played mostly by Daves. It's "a roots-music master class, a brilliant example of old modes reinhabited with flair," says the New York Times. "To his credit, it can be hard to pick which version of a tune is best.” The LP includes a download of the complete Orchids and Violence album.

  • This first-ever vinyl edition of Clint Mansell's haunting score to Darren Aronofsky's 2000 film Requiem for a Dream, performed by Kronos Quartet, was first released for Record Store Day 2016. The album, pressed on two 180-gram LPs, features the original soundtrack, remastered for the release, plus two previously unreleased bonus tracks, as well as a download of the complete album, and newly commissioned artwork by Simon C Page.

  • Emmylou Harris's groundbreaking, Grammy Award–winning album Wrecking Ball received its first worldwide vinyl release for Record Store Day 2016, complete with additional bonus material. This new edition, pressed on three 180-gram discs, includes the original Daniel Lanois–produced album, remastered, along with several bonus tracks first released on the 2014 three-disc Nonesuch reissue of the album, which Uncut called "a masterpiece."

  • This live two-disc recording documents a historic reunion from the legendary Brazilian musicians Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. Recorded during a concert in Brazil in 2015, Dois Amigos, Um Século de Música: Multishow Live celebrates a lifelong friendship over the half-century careers of two artists who have broken cultural, social, and political barriers through music. The Guardian says: "They are now in their early 70s, and they are still remarkable." Jazzwise calls it "a glorious celebration of Brazilian music, the art of the singer-songwriter, and an enduring friendship." NPR says: "It's almost startling to encounter music like this—refined to an essence, simple, graceful and complete."

  • Michael Daves's Orchids and Violence comprises two discs with identical track listings of mostly traditional bluegrass tunes, including songs by bluegrass pioneers Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley. The first disc has acoustic takes with a band of roots-music innovators: bassist Mike Bub, violinist Brittany Haas, mandolinist Sarah Jarosz, and Punch Brothers banjoist Noam Pikelny. The second includes bass, drums, and electric guitar, mostly played by Daves, with an experimental rock take on those tunes. "The identical track listing makes for a good comparison study," says the New York Times, "and to his credit, it can be hard to pick which version of a tune is best."

  • For its Nonesuch debut album, Side Pony, Lake Street Dive—drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael "McDuck" Olson—worked with Nashville-based producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell). The title refers to a whimsical hairstyle but also serves as a metaphor for the band's philosophy and personality. "A band steeped in Motown Soul, Beatles melodies, and pop divas from Dusty Springfield to Adele," says Rolling Stone, "the retro vibe rules, vividly captured by producer Dave Cobb … pretty irresistible."
