    "Junun" to Open for Radiohead on European Tour
    Shin Katan

    Composer/musician Shye Ben Tzur and the group of Indian musicians known as the Rajasthan Express will perform music from their 2015 album Junun as the opening act for Radiohead in select cities on the band's sold-out European tour: at the Spektrum in Oslo on June 6 and 7, Ericsson Globe in Stockholm on June 9, 3 Arena in Dublin on June 20, and Manchester Arena on July 4 and 5. Ben Tzur and the Rajasthan Express will also perform from Junun at the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona on June 3 and Best Kept Secret in the Netherlands on June 18.

    Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood had joined Shye Ben Tzur and the Rajasthan Express to record Junun in a makeshift studio inside the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, India. The album, made with Radiohead's producer Nigel Godrich, comprises Ben Tzur’s compositions, which feature devotional Sufi qawwal musicians who sing in Urdu as well as in his native Hebrew. The Times of London called it "one of the most inspired releases of the year ... Intriguing, sinuous, and essential listening."

    To pick up a copy of the album, head to iTunes, Amazon, or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.
