    Watch: Rachael & Vilray Release "Let's Make Love on This Plane," New Track from Self-Titled Album

    A new album track from the forthcoming Rachael & Vilray—the debut album by Lake Street Dive singer-songwriter Rachael Price and composer, singer, and guitarist Vilray—"Let's Make Love on This Plane" debuted today with a video by Robert Edridge-Waks featuring footage from the golden age of jet travel. "'Let's Make Love on This Plane' finds its inspiration in classic 'list songs' like Gershwin's 'They All Laughed' and Porter's 'I Get A Kick Out of You,' both chock full of little jokes," says Vilray. "Here two jetsetters contemplate the famous pioneers of flight and decide to one-up their aerial firsts with a bang."

    Rachael & Vilray, due October 4, features ten original songs by Vilray, along with two covers from the era that inspired him: Cuban composer Pedro Junco Jr.'s 1943 "Nosotros" and Milton Drake/Louis Atler's "I Love the Way You're Breaking My Heart," first popularized by Peggy Lee. Rachael & Vilray tour the US this fall, with stops in Chicago, Seattle, and Brooklyn; details below at and nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Rachael & Vilray is available for pre-order at iTunes and the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of the new song and the previously release track "Alone at Last." Nonesuch Store orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print of a painting made by Hannah Rawe for the occasion and autographed by Rachael and Vilray. The album will also stream at Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and other digital service providers.

    Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker's Suite for Max Brown is out now via a newly formed partnership between International Anthem and Nonesuch Records. The album, named for and dedicated to Parker's mother, features nine original songs as well as "Gnarciss," an interpretation of Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus," and John Coltrane's "After the Rain." Parker plays the majority of the instruments on the record. "The veteran guitarist has created an effortlessly detailed album, full of tradition and experimentation that spans generations," says Pitchfork. "It lives at the vanguard of new jazz music."

    The original cast recording for Dave Malloy's musical Octet—recorded live during Signature Theatre's world premiere production—is now available on CD, following its digital release late last year. Featuring a score for an a cappella chamber choir and an original libretto inspired by internet comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts, and Sufi poetry, Octet explores addiction and nihilism within the messy context of twenty-first century technology. "The most original and topical musical of the year," says the New York Times; "the sublime a cappella chamber opera is a portrait in song of perhaps the greatest David and Goliath struggle of our time."
