    Listen: Mountain Man's "Magic Ship" Streaming in Full As NPR First Listen

    Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out next Friday, September 21, 2018, on Nonesuch Records (via Bella Union in Europe). But you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full till then as an NPR First Listen at npr.org/firstlisten.

    The new album is a reflection on the joys, follies, and oddities of existence. The songs on Magic Ship distill eight years of experience since their 2010 debut album, Made the Harbor, of sights seen, pleasures had, feelings hurt, forgiveness extended.

    "There's also a precision to these songs—both in harmony and duration—that lend them a sense of purpose," writes NPR's Otis Hart. "Magic Ship is most potent when heard in full, from beginning to end, ideally on a back porch or around a smoldering campfire."

    Read more of Hart's review and listen to the album now at npr.org/firstlisten.

    Magic Ship is available to pre-order on iTunes, the Mountain Man Store, and the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of the album tracks "Rang Tang Ring Toon," "Window" and "Stella." Additionally, all Nonesuch Store pre-orders include a limited-edition print signed by the band; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. Magic Ship will also be available at Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon.

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi were on NPR's World Cafe to perform from the new album there is no Other and talk with host Talia Schlanger. It's "a fascinating collaboration," says Schlanger. "Both Rhiannon and Francesco are devoted students of music history whose mission is to use the past to illuminate the present and to give credit where credit’s due for the way instruments and ideas have moved over time between people. They used all that knowledge to make gorgeous music together on a new album called there is no Other." Hear the episode here.

    The latest episode of Robert Plant's new podcast series, Digging Deep, digs deep into "Bones of Saints," a song from his latest album, Carry Fire. "It's about vitality. I can't hold back the hands of time or anything like that, but I can only be in environments where people really, really mean it musically," Plant says of creating new music with his band the Sensational Space Shifters. "We have a kind of inherent capacity to start a new project and know that we have business to do ... If it gets anywhere at all, this music, it ought to be saying something, it ought to be reflecting." You can listen to the episode and watch the video for the track here.
