    Tyondai Braxton releases “Dia" / "Phonolydian”—his first new music in five years—on Nonesuch Records today. The two new tracks feature Braxton on electronics and were recorded in his home studio in Bearsville, New York. They mark the beginning in a series of new releases to continue through the new year. Braxton also announces Multiplay, a three-show residency at Public Records in Brooklyn comprising solo sets with special guests Leila Bordreuil and Lea Bertucci & Ben Vida in January and February, respectively, and a duo set with Greg Fox in March.

    It was ten years ago today: The Black Keys' landmark seventh studio album, El Camino, was released on December 6, 2011, on Nonesuch Records. To mark the occasion, Derrick T. Tuggle, the dancing star of the 2011 video for the album track "Lonely Boy," stars in a new video in which he unboxes the band's new five-LP Super Deluxe 10th anniversary edition of that album. You can watch it and take a look inside the set here.

Artist Spotlight

  • LIFE ON EARTH, the Nonesuch debut of Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra), is a departure for the Bronx-born, New Orleans-based singer/songwriter. Its eleven new "nature punk" tracks on the theme of survival are music for a world in flux—songs about thriving, not just surviving, while disaster is happening. The album was recorded during the pandemic with producer Brad Cook. While making it, Segarra drew inspiration from the Clash, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Bad Bunny, and the...

  • Singer/songwriter Cécile McLorin Salvant's Nonesuch Records debut album, Ghost Song, features a diverse mix of seven originals and five interpretations on the themes of ghosts, nostalgia, and yearning. Salvant says, “It’s unlike anything I’ve done before—it’s getting closer to reflecting my personality as an eclectic curator. I’m embracing my weirdness!” 

  • Jeff Parker’s solo guitar album Forfolks includes interpretations of Thelonious Monk's “Ugly Beauty” and the standard “My Ideal,” plus six original compositions: two earlier tunes, “Four Folks" and “La Jetée,” and four new loop-driven, stratiform works that marry melodic improvisation with electronic textures. As Parker says: “I am trying to create a sonic world for me to wander around in.”

  • Punch Brothers' album Hell on Church Street is the band's reimaigining of, and homage to, the late bluegrass great Tony Rice’s landmark solo album Church Street Blues, featuring an inspired collection of songs by Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Bill Monroe, and others. Recorded in November 2020, Hell on Church Street had been intended as both its own work of art and a gift to Rice, who died later that year. "After we got over the shock of losing our hero and friend...

  • Emmylou Harris and the Nash Ramblers' Ramble in Music City: The Lost Concert, features the 1990 Nashville debut of the acoustic all-star group—Sam Bush, Roy Huskey Jr., Larry Atamanuik, Al Perkins, Jon Randall Stewart—at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. The concert was recorded and shelved until now, when it has been unearthed and will be released for the first time. The set features entirely different songs from the band's acclaimed live album At the Ryman, with...
