Laurie Anderson's new film, Heart of a Dog, begins its theatrical run in UK cinemas starting Tuesday, May 10, at the Duke of York's Picturehouse in Brighton. That screening, which also includes a Q&A with Anderson, is part of the Brighton Festival, of which Anderson is this year's guest director. The following day, May 11, Anderson takes part in two equally special screenings in London: she gives an introductory Q&A before a showing of the film especially for dogs (and their owners) at Picturehouse Central, then she heads to Curzon Bloomsbury, where she joins BBC Radio 6 Music host Lauren Laverne for a post-screening Q&A. The film continues to open in cinemas across the UK and Ireland through the spring and summer. For all the details, visit dogwoof.com.

Before the theatrical run begins, Laurie Anderson takes part in a conversation about the film following a sold-out screening at the Tate Modern next Friday, April 22.

Heart of a Dog, Laurie Anderson's first feature film in 30 years, is a personal essay on joy and heartbreak and remembering and forgetting, at the heart of which is a lament for her late beloved dog Lolabelle. It recently won the International Cinephile Society Award for Best Documentary. The New York Times calls it "dreamy, drifty, and altogether lovely." New York says it's "one of the most moving and provocative films you’ll see this year."

The complete soundtrack recording of Heart of a Dog is available from Nonesuch Records and contains the full audio recording of the film, including all music and spoken text. To pick up a copy, head to the iTunes or the Nonesuch Store now.

    The first recordings of Steve Reich’s Runner (2016) and Music for Ensemble and Orchestra (2018), performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and conducted by Susanna Mälkki, are out now digitally and on CD; vinyl is due December 2. The New York Times calls Runner “a calmly luminous orchestral piece with the pulsating, propulsive rhythms that animate much of Mr. Reich’s music.” The San Francisco Chronicle says that Music for Ensemble and Orchestra “is a beautiful and dramatically charged masterpiece, but its impact goes even further than that.”

    Seven special editions of Wilco's landmark 2002 album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot are out now. The now-classic record has been remastered and is available in each set. The Super Deluxe version has eleven vinyl LPs and one CD—including demos, drafts, and instrumentals, charting the making of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot—plus a live 2002 concert recording and a September 2001 radio performance and interview. That box set includes 82 previously unreleased music tracks as well as a new book featuring an interview with Jeff Tweedy, Glenn Kotche, and Jim O’Rourke; an in-depth essay by journalist/author Bob Mehr; and previously unseen photos of the band making the album in their Chicago studio. You can take a look inside in an unboxing video here. Pitchfork gives the set a perfect 10: "A sprawling new box set full of demos and alternate takes suggests a dazzling array of paths the Chicago group might have taken on their masterpiece."
