    Dan Winters

    Natalie Merchant's new, self-titled album is due out next Tuesday, May 6, on Nonesuch Records. But you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the multi-platinum singer's sixth solo collection is streaming in full all this week in the New York Times's Press Play feature. Head to nytimes.com to hear the complete album now. To reserve a copy of the album and download the opening track, "Ladybird," now, visit iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where orders include a download of the complete album available starting Tuesday.

    Merchant has added a new date to her previously announced US tour: she will perform at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on September 13. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 11 AM ET. For all the details for her upcoming tour, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Earlier this month, Natalie Merchant released two music videos from the album: "Giving Up Everything," which debuted on NPR Music, "Ladybird," which Rolling Stone premiered. Both can now be seen on YouTube and at nonesuch.com/media. Also on both sites, and posted below, is a video of an in-depth conversation with Merchant, in which she discusses the new album and the "intimate portraits" she creates in its songs.

    "I remember reading that Virginia Woolf thought that Mrs. Dalloway was the first novel that she ever wrote after she had found her voice," Merchant says in the interview. "And she was 43. You can't find your voice until you've lived for a long time."

Mountain Man will present a three-night COSMIC PROM of songs from the trio's collective catalog in Durham, NC, January 17–19.
