    "We’ve spent the last couple years writing songs and recording demos in various places round the world, assembling the bones of what will be our next album," say The Staves, who have released a new demo track, "Nothing's Gonna Happen." "This song was written in a bedroom in east London and, later, recorded in a studio in Wisconsin. It’s been a while since we put new music out and we thought that seeing as this is the season of giving, we’d let one of these demos surface for anybody who is interested to hear ... We appreciate our wonderful fans so much and thought it would be a cool thing to show you a small sliver of the process."

    Early James, an Alabama native and the latest signing to Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound roster, releases his debut album, Singing for My Supper, via Easy Eye and Nonesuch Records on March 13, 2020. The album spans hard-charging blues, wistful folk, and ages-old pop crooning, anchored by the singer's voice that moves from gravel-gruff shout to a honey-smooth whisper. James' inspirations run from Fiona Apple and Tom Waits to the Southern Gothic poets, as heard in the album's darker themes and in the wry humor with which he writes about them. The video for the album track "Blue Pill Blues" premiered on American Songwriter earlier today and can be seen here.

    Yola spoke with NPR member station 88Nine Radio Milwaukee for its Yours Truly series of up-close artist interviews. She talks about meeting Mavis Staples—with whom she performs at Holiday Cheer for FUV in NYC next week—and surrounding herself with "golden people." "The environment that I've built for myself—it is so important to connect," she says. "Certainly you'll hear this from women far and wide that there are environments that don't let them self-actualize, and that was definitely No. 1, people that accepted me as I was." Watch it here.

    Rolling Stone has published its list of The 100 Best Albums of the 2010s, including two Nonesuch releases: The Black Keys' Brothers at No. 14, "one of their most emotive and cathartic records ... set to beautifully smudgy R&B, soul, and low-fi funk," and Randy Newman's Dark Matter at No. 36, "a gem, perhaps Newman’s most mordant assessment yet of his fellow man."

    Mandy Patinkin was on NPR's All Things Considered last week to talk with host Ari Shapiro about his new album, Children and Art. "Art, never more than these moments we're living these days, is the avenue toward expression of existence," he says. "The whole system is falling apart, and you need to turn to the fire department to put out the flames. And in this case, I appeal to artists of every nature to guide us and lead us back to humanity and caring for our fellow human beings and doing what is morally and ethically appropriate." Patinkin is on tour now.
