    "David Byrne's American Utopia" Partners with HeadCount to Promote Voter Registration

    David Byrne's American Utopia has joined thirteen other Broadway shows to partner with HeadCount—the non-partisan organization using the power of music to register voters and promote participation in democracy—to promote voter registration in the United States. Although Broadway performances in New York City remain suspended through the remainder of 2020 due to COVID-19, fans can join their favorite shows in making their voices heard at the polls this fall.

    Fans across the United States can go to headcount.org to register, check, or update your voter registration status online and find localized information about polling dates, sites, and candidates, and, by doing so, enter to win tickets to see American Utopia and other Broadway shows when performances resume. The contest runs through October 1.

    American Utopia had previously hosted a HeadCount voter registration booth in the Hudson Theatre lobby at each performance. The filmed version of the show, directed by Spike Lee, will debut on HBO later this year. The original cast recording, released late last year on Nonesuch Records, is available here.

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi have released a new video for their rendition of the traditional American folk song “O Death,” from their new album, They're Calling Me Home. The video features illustrated vignettes of a story about death painted by Maeve Clancy, an Irish crankie roll artist. Giddens explains, “Crankies are a pre-electricity technology that pair a visual narrative, usually painted on a long piece of paper or cloth, 'cranked' by hand to the timing of the song.” You can watch it here.

    Chris Thile has released a new song, "Dionysus," from his forthcoming album, Laysongs, due June 4 on Nonesuch; you can hear it here. Laysongs is his first truly solo album: just Thile, his voice, and his mandolin, on new recordings of six original songs and three covers, all of which contextualize and banter with his ideas about spirituality. The album was recorded in a converted upstate New York church during the pandemic.
