Ahead of their concert at Barbican Hall in London on Wednesday, Rhiannon Giddens and her band were on BBC Radio 4's Front Row to talk with presenter Tom Sutcliffe about her new album, You're the One, and perform two songs from it live in the studio: "If You Don't Know How Sweet It Is" and "Yet to Be." You can hear their conversation and the performances at the start of the episode below via Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

Following Wednesday's performance at the Barbican, Giddens and the band play at Birmingham Town Hall and Pavilion Theatre in Glasgow, before returning to Ireland for a night at Vicar Street in Dublin. They head to the States next month. For details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

Rhiannon Giddens’ You’re the One is her third solo studio album and her first of all original songs. This collection of twelve tunes written over the course of her career bursts with life-affirming energy, drawing from the folk music she knows so deeply and its pop descendants. The album was produced by Jack Splash (Kendrick Lamar, Solange, Alicia Keys, Valerie June) and recorded with an ensemble including Giddens' closest musical collaborators from the past decade, a string section, and Miami Horns. The lone featured guest on the album is Jason Isbell on “Yet to Be.” You can get it and hear it here.
