To celebrate today's forty-fifth anniversary of the release of Kate Bush's single "Wuthering Heights," Nonesuch releases a Kassa Overall remix of Cécile McLorin Salvant’s interpretation of the classic song, from her 2022 Grammy-nominated album, Ghost Song. The Guardian called the album track "a stunning, ethereal cover," the New York Times called it "blazing," and Vanity Fair called it "addictive." Overall is a Grammy-nominated musician, emcee, singer, producer, and drummer who melds avant-garde experimentation with hip-hop production techniques to tilt the nexus of jazz and rap in unmapped directions. You can stream and download the remix here and hear it below.

Ghost Song has received critical acclaim and has earned two Grammy nominations: Best Jazz Vocal Album and Best Arrangement, Instrumental and Vocals for the album track “Optimistic Voices / No Love Dying.” Ghost Song features a diverse mix of seven originals and five interpretations on the themes of ghosts, nostalgia, and yearning. It has landed Number 1 spots on the New York Times’ list of the Best Jazz Albums of 2022 and Jazzwise’s list of the 20 Best Jazz Albums of 2022, where it was called “music of sensitivity and intelligence, which underlines Salvant’s growth as an artist of stature who stylistic choices are as daring as they are mature.” In the Wall Street Journal, Larry Blumenfeld says the album “is her boldest act yet. Here, Ms. Salvant displays yet more sonic range and nuance—soaring through intervals, moving nimbly through tricky rhythms, and reveling in pithy turns of phrase. Her voice is singularly arresting, yet it is never a single sound.”

    Thomas Adès’ Dante—a ballet score in three acts based on Dante Alighieri’s La Divina Commedia—was recorded by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel in concert at Disney Hall for the premiere recording, due April 21 on Nonesuch Records. Dante was first performed at the Royal Opera House as part of Wayne McGregor’s The Dante Project for the Royal Ballet, with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and with designs by visual artist Tacita Dean. “In any new shortlist of great ballet scores by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Bartók, Ravel, Prokofiev, Britten, and Bernstein, Dante must newly be included for its musical invention alone,” exclaims the Los Angeles Times. “There is not a second in its 88 minutes that doesn’t delight. All of it is unexpected and wanted.” The collectable limited vinyl two-LP edition includes artwork by Dean and photography from the Royal Ballet’s performance.
