Excerpt

Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell's forthcoming album, Old Yellow Moon, has made NPR's Heavy Rotation: 5 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing. "Their new album of duets, Old Yellow Moon, sounds classic in every sense of musical accomplishment: from their gorgeous singing and inspiring studio performances to their excellent choice of material," says NPR station XPN2. "It hearkens back to classic recordings like Harris' Elite Hotel and Crowell's Diamonds and Dirt, and brings the best out of the two veterans." Harris and Crowell are currently in the UK, with appearances on BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 4's Loose Ends, and BBC Radio 2's Simon Mayo show.

Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, whose new duets album, Old Yellow Moon, is due out on Nonesuch Records on February 26, have been selected for NPR's Heavy Rotation: 5 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing. To make it even more special, the folks at XPN2: Singer-Songwriter Radio in Philadelphia, a brand-new member of public radio, were asked "to share their favorite songs of their first two weeks on the planet," and they chose "Hanging Up My Heart," the opening track off the forthcoming album (a download of which is also included with album pre-orders in the Nonesuch Store).

"Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell are both legends in the world of country and folk music," says XPN2 program director Bruce Warren. "Their new album of duets, Old Yellow Moon, sounds classic in every sense of musical accomplishment: from their gorgeous singing and inspiring studio performances to their excellent choice of material, including covers of songs by Roger Miller and Kris Kristofferson and originals by Crowell. It hearkens back to classic recordings like Harris' Elite Hotel and Crowell's Diamonds and Dirt, and brings the best out of the two veterans." Read more and download the track at npr.org.

Harris and Crowell are currently in the UK, where the album is due out March 4. They were guests on BBC Radio 4's Loose Ends on Saturday evening to discuss Old Yellow Moon and perform a song off the album, "Dreaming My Dreams." You can listen again to the show at bbc.co.uk, where their segment begins at 31:48 minutes in. Yesterday morning, the pair began their day with an interview on BBC Breakfast—fans in the UK can watch again here—and yesterday afternoon they were interviewed live by BBC Radio 2's Simon Mayo, who also played two tracks from the album; listen to that at bbc.co.uk. Old Yellow Moon received its first UK play last Thursday night with BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris, who played the album track "Invitation to the Blues," written by Roger Miller; listen again at bbc.co.uk, where the song begins at 10:33 minutes in.

To pre-order Old Yellow Moon, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include a print of Harris and Crowell autographed by the artists.
