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.

    Thomas Adès’ Dante—a ballet score in three acts based on Dante Alighieri’s La Divina Commedia—was recorded by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel in concert at Disney Hall for the premiere recording, due April 21 on Nonesuch Records. Dante, with choreography by Wayne McGregor and design by visual artist Tacita Dean, premiered in London in 2021 with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Ballet. “In any new shortlist of great ballet scores by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Bartók, Ravel, Prokofiev, Britten, and Bernstein, Dante must newly be included for its musical invention alone,” exclaims the Los Angeles Times. “There is not a second in its 88 minutes that doesn’t delight. All of it is unexpected and wanted.” The collectable limited vinyl two-LP edition includes artwork by Dean and photography from the Royal Ballet’s performance.
