    Mountain Man Releases Wilco's "You and I" Cover on Nonesuch Records

    Mountain Man—the trio of Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—has released Mountain Man Sings Wilco, the latest in its series of cover singles, featuring its version of “You and I” from 2009’s Wilco (the album). The digital single, available now via the Nonesuch Store, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and other digital service providers, follows last month’s digital release of Mountain Man’s performing the Irving Berlin holiday classic “White Christmas” on Nonesuch.

    “We have been band members, collaborators, friends and business partners for over 10 years now,” says Mountain Man, “so a song like ‘You and I,’ a celebration of creating a relationship that is totally unique and filled with mystery, seemed very appropriate.”

    Mountain Man has also announced a series of shows in the New Year: As part of Duke Performances, it will bring COSMIC PROM to The Fruit in Durham, North Carolina, January 17–19, 2020. In collaboration with visual artist Nathaniel Russell, the trio will create three distinct experiences as part of COSMIC PROM: Beneath the Stars, Under the Canopy, and Below the Sea. The venue will transform each night into a unique and immersive environment in which audiences and Mountain Man will embrace spontaneity, imagination, and wonder. The band will explore its collective catalog, joined by special guests; details and tickets are available here.

    To pick up a copy of Mountain Man's Nonesuch debut album, Magic Ship, and stream it, go here. To do the same for Dawnbreaker, the debut solo album from Daughter of Swords (Alexandra Sauser-Monnig), go here.

    Brad Mehldau’s Variations on a Melancholy Theme is out now. The recording features the pianist/composer and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, which commissioned this orchestral version of the work—a theme and eleven variations plus a cadenza and postlude. The album also includes an encore, “Variations ‘X’ and ‘Y.'" "I imagine it as if Brahms woke up one day and had the blues," Mehldau says of the piece, which combines the classical form with jazz harmonies. "While the theme evokes melancholy, I let it be used as a springboard for other happy, wild, violent, and reckless emotions as the variations progress." You can watch a video for Variation 4 here.

    Rhiannon Giddens’ new album, They're Calling Me Home, recorded with Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, released earlier this year on CD and digital, is now on vinyl. Giddens and Turrisi, who both live in Ireland when they aren’t on tour, have been there since March 2020 due to the pandemic. The two expats found themselves drawn to the music of their native and adoptive countries of America, Italy, and Ireland during lockdown. Exploring the emotions brought up by the moment, Giddens and Turrisi decamped to Hellfire, a small studio on a working farm outside of Dublin, to record these songs over six days.
