Brad Mehldau has recorded a podcast episode about his new album, Jacob’s Ladder. He talks about some of his personal experiences over the last two years while working on the music he's made during these turbulent times. You can hear the episode below and on additional podcast providers here. Additional episodes are expected to come.

Jacob’s Ladder, released in March digitally and on CD and due June 17 on vinyl, features new music that reflects on scripture and the search for God through music inspired by the prog rock he loved as a young adolescent—his gateway to the fusion that eventually led to his discovery of jazz. Featured musicians on the album include label mates Chris Thile and Cécile McLorin Salvant, as well as Mark Guiliana, Becca Stevens, Joel Frahm, and others. Mojo calls it "a kaleidoscopic affair, where baroque prog-rock edifices are juxtaposed with clouds of ethereal choirs, dreamy piano interludes, and squalls of free jazz-style clarinet. Skillfully weaving these elements into storytelling sound collages, Mehldau takes the listener on a memorable musical journey." You can hear the album and pre-order the vinyl here.
