    Listen: The Staves, yMusic Share "Silent Side" from New Album, "The Way Is Read"

    The Staves and yMusic, whose new album, The Way Is Read, is due digitally on November 24 and on vinyl December 1, have released a third track from the album, "Silent Side." You can hear it below, listen on Spotify and Apple Music, and download it now, along with the previously released album tracks "Trouble on My Mind" and "The Way Is Read" when you pre-order the album on iTunes and the Nonesuch Store.

    After being commissioned in 2016 by Justin Vernon's Eaux Claires Festival to collaborate on a live performance piece, The Staves delved deep into New York City–based ensemble yMusic's catalogue of contemporary classical compositions to find pieces suited to their lyrics and vocals. While the Festival is known for bringing musicians together for one-off performances, this is the first time one of those partnerships has made the leap into a studio album. The LP was produced by Rob Moose and Jessica Staveley-Taylor and mixed and engineered by Brian Joseph at his studio, Hive, in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

    The two groups will come together live again at a series of special shows at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis on December 1 and 2, and they also will perform on public radio's A Prairie Home Companion from The Town Hall in New York City on December 16. The Staves will tour Australia and New Zealand in February and March. Details at nonesuch.com/on-tour.

"Few women get named to those greatest all-time guitar-player lists that come out now and then," says host Judy Woodruff. "But as special correspondent Tom Casciato reports, there is one playing bluegrass who appears to be on her way." Casciato confirms: "Molly Tuttle is at the top of her profession."
