    Listen: Laurie Anderson Talks with 'Chatter' Podcast

    Laurie Anderson is the guest on the latest episode of the Lawfare podcast Chatter, hosted by Shane Harris and David Priess. She talks with Harris about her work—on the occasion of The Weather, her current exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC—particularly as it relates to the podcast's focus on the intersection of art and national security, including her piece Habeas Corpus, her surprise 1981 hit single "O Superman," and her 2015 film Heart of a Dog. You can hear their conversation below.

    "Your career defies succinct summary and characterization for purpose of an intro ... but I really think of you as a storyteller who has worked in every conceivable medium: You're a musician ... You are a visual multimedia artist ... a writer, a painter. You've kind of done it all."

    Nonesuch Records reissued Laurie Anderson's debut album, Big Science, which features "O Superman," on red vinyl last year. Remixes of two tracks from the album were recently released: the title track, remixed by Arca, and "Sweaters," remixed by Sam Gendel.
