    Listen: Rhiannon Giddens Featured on "The New Yorker Radio Hour"
    Golden Cosmos

    Rhiannon Giddens, whose new album, there is no Other, was released today, is a guest on the latest episode of The New Yorker Radio Hour. She and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi talk with The New Yorker editor David Remnick about the new album and perform songs from it live: "Little Margaret" and "Pizzica di San Vito." You can hear the conversation and performance on the episode below.

    The new album has already been met with critical acclaim, landing on the week's must-hear playlists of NPR, Pitchfork, and the New York Times, whose Jon Pareles wonders: "Is there anything Rhiannon Giddens can't sing?" Rolling Stone calls it "the most distilled and sui generis display of the unique artistry that defines her still-blossoming career." "This is acoustic roots music at its most glorious," exclaims Uncut, "and Giddens is fast becoming the genre’s brightest star in the firmament." "Wonderful," the Guardian declares in its five-star review, naming it Folk Album of the Month. "For an album recorded in only five days, it wallops with impact. Giddens is going supernova, and it’s a blistering thing."

    To pick up a copy of there is no Other, head to your local music shop, iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout. The album can also be heard at Spotify, Apple Music, and other digital service providers. A two-LP vinyl edition, which includes four additional tracks, expanded liner notes, and new photos from the recording session, will be released on September 13 and is available to pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store with an exclusive, limited-edition autographed print.

    "Though the exact day is not known, it was fifteen years ago that Lake Street Dive became a band," says Rachael Price. "McDuck wrote our name on the chalkboard of a practice room and it was done. We didn’t know each other that well. We had zero idea of what kind of music we would play. We certainly didn’t know that fateful day marked the beginning of the longest platonic double date of my life. We have been through so much together ... Happy Fifteenth Bandiversary, y'all!"
