    The Rhiannon Giddens–hosted podcast series Aria Code, presented by The Metropolitan Opera and WQXR, has returned with a special episode. It's focused on the aria "The Trees on the Mountain," from Carlisle Floyd's opera Susannah, which Giddens performs on her new album, there is no Other. She is joined by soprano Renée Fleming, writer/director Thomas Holliday, and feminist writer Leora Tanenbaum. You can hear the episode, including Fleming’s 1999 performance of the aria and Giddens's own from the new album, here.

    Daughter of Swords, aka Mountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, has shared a new song, "Fields of Gold," from her upcoming album, Dawnbreaker. You can watch the lyric video, which features drawings by Sauser-Monnig and animation by Robert Edridge-Waks, below. Stereogum, which premiered the video, says of the track: "It shimmers and shines like a ray of light, a true field of gold if you will."

Artist Spotlight

  • Dawnbreaker is the debut album from Daughter of Swords, the solo project of Mountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig. These ten songs, inspired by a breakup that had yet to happen, lament the inevitable loss but, more important, outline the promise of the future. Working with Sylvan Esso's Nick Sanborn, Sauser-Monnig shaped what began as quiet reflections into confident compositions, crackling with country swagger and a sparkling pop warmth, preemptive odes to the next phase of life...

  • Walk Through Fire, the debut album from Yola, establishes her as a country soul queen from the first note. The Dan Auerbach–produced album puts a contemporary twist on a traditional sonic tapestry of orchestral strings, fiddle, steel, and shimmering tremolo guitars. Walk Through Fire is a genre-bending release from an artist whose arresting vocals captivate with sincere tales of heartache and loves lost, forgotten, and broken.

  • Rhiannon Giddens’s album there is no Other, recorded with the multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, was produced by Joe Henry and tracked over five days in Dublin. The album is at once a condemnation of “othering” and a celebration of the spread of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience.

  • On Finding Gabriel, Brad Mehldau performs on piano, synthesizers, percussion, Fender Rhodes, and vocals. Guest musicians include Ambrose Akinmusire, Sara Caswell, Kurt Elling, Joel Frahm, Mark Guiliana, Gabriel Kahane, Becca Stevens, and others.

  • The Black Keys' first album in five years, "Let's Rock," is due June 28 on Easy Eye Sound / Nonesuch Records! It's a return to the straightforward rock of the band's early days. Pre-order to download the album tracks "Eagle Birds" and "Lo/Hi" now.
