The new album from Portuguese fado singer Carminho, Portuguesa, is due for release in the US on CD and vinyl August 18, 2023, available to pre-order here; the self-produced record was released to critical acclaim earlier this year. In celebration of its US release, Carminho returns to the US for the first time since 2019 with dates beginning October 6 in Boston and including shows across North America including NJ, California, Chicago, Montreal, Vancouver, and Toronto; see below for details or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

The sixth album of Carminho’s career, Portuguesa features fourteen compositions, including several of her own songs as well as those of other writers, including traditional fado songs, through which she explores various combinations within the canons, reimagining the form.

The artist says of her album: “The album Portuguesa began to take shape in 2019 and its genesis has the same basis as all the previous ones: A permanent fascination with fado, for its inexhaustible paths and possibilities within the same matrix, and recognizing in it the most natural language to express myself. For me, fado is a language more than a message, a path more than a destination.

She continues, “But if on the previous album I explored the most personal and intuitive experience I had with my family, listening to my mother sing, in fado houses, meeting and learning from the best interpreters, on this last one I dedicated myself to researching the composition and poetry, daring to compose original traditional fados and to delve into technical and historical issues of building a repertoire.”

    "'Ghost' explores the weariness and anxiety of being a fully feeling human who is forced to live in our modern world and its tech-saturated chaos,” Ringdown, the Portland-based cinematic pop duo of creator-musicians Danni Lee Parpan and Caroline Shaw, says of its second Nonesuch single, out now. “This is especially isolating in the world of internet dating, where the spotty texting tempo and normalized behavior of ‘ghosting’ someone can feel crushing. We used the clunky pedal sounds from a vintage piano as a heartbeat throughout the song. To us, this represents the yearning for connection beyond technology.”
