    Listen: Yola Talks with NPR's "On Point"
    Alysse Gafkjen

    Yola was the guest on On Point from NPR member station WBUR on Tuesday. "Ladies and gentlemen: Turn. It. Up," exclaims host Meghna Chakrabarti at the start of the interview. "You're gonna wanna hear this music and this woman. And you're going to wish you've had a twelve-month streak like Yola has had ... We needed music like this right now." The two discuss Yola's multiple Grammy-nominated, Dan Auerbach–produced debut album, Walk Through Fire, and that year-long streak following its release—or, as Yola puts it, "a weekly update of life-changing news." You can hear their conversation here:

    Yola released a deluxe digital edition of Walk Through Fire, which includes her cover of Elton John’s classic "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" and a new song, "I Don't Wanna Lie." The album is available to download in the Nonesuch Store, iTunes, and Amazon, and is streaming on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Yola continues her tour at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn tonight, followed by shows in DC, Philadelphia, and Toronto this weekend. She performs at the MusiCares Person of the Year tribute to Aerosmith in Los Angeles over Grammy weekend, will make her Austin City Limits debut taping in early February, and has been added to the Bonnaroo Music Festival lineup in June.

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
