    Here Lies Love, David Byrne's song-cycle collaboration with Fatboy Slim on the life of Filipino first lady Imelda Marcos, is due out next week from Todomundo / Nonesuch Records, on Tuesday, April 6, and is streaming in full all week as an NPR "First Listen" at npr.org. The Nonesuch Journal is pleased to announce that, one week later, on Tuesday, April 13, Byrne will appear at the MoMA Design and Book Store at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City to sign copies of the album purchased there.

    Available at the book store will be the deluxe edition of Here Lies Love, which includes 22 songs on two discs, a DVD with six videos featuring songs from the album cut to archival and historical footage from the Philippines, and a 114-page cloth-bound book with lyrics, photos, and essays.

    Byrne first introduced the two-disc album and the score of vocalists he enlisted for it, including Natalie Merchant, Tori Amos, Steve Earle, Cyndi Lauper, Kate Pierson, Santigold, and St. Vincent in an early-look video available at nonesuch.com/media. Last week, he revealed the first of the six videos from the deluxe album DVD, "Please Don't," featuring vocals by Santigold, which you can also find at nonesuch.com/media.

    Brad Mehldau’s Variations on a Melancholy Theme is out now. The recording features the pianist/composer and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, which commissioned this orchestral version of the work—a theme and eleven variations plus a cadenza and postlude. The album also includes an encore, “Variations ‘X’ and ‘Y.'" "I imagine it as if Brahms woke up one day and had the blues," Mehldau says of the piece, which combines the classical form with jazz harmonies. "While the theme evokes melancholy, I let it be used as a springboard for other happy, wild, violent, and reckless emotions as the variations progress." You can watch a video for Variation 4 here.

    Rhiannon Giddens’ new album, They're Calling Me Home, recorded with Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, released earlier this year on CD and digital, is now on vinyl. Giddens and Turrisi, who both live in Ireland when they aren’t on tour, have been there since March 2020 due to the pandemic. The two expats found themselves drawn to the music of their native and adoptive countries of America, Italy, and Ireland during lockdown. Exploring the emotions brought up by the moment, Giddens and Turrisi decamped to Hellfire, a small studio on a working farm outside of Dublin, to record these songs over six days.
