    Randy Newman Announces Tour of Australia, New Zealand for Early 2020

    Randy Newman has announced a series of international An Evening with Randy Newman tour dates for 2020, beginning with Australia and New Zealand in January and February—his first tour of Australia since 2011, and his first ever tour of New Zealand. See the full itinerary is listed below and at nonesuch.com/on-tour. Tickets go on sale on Monday, August 26. Further dates, in Europe in spring 2020, will be announced shortly. These tour dates follow the release of Dark Matter, Newman's first album of new material in a decade, which includes the Grammy Award–winning song "Putin."

    Nonesuch Records released Dark Matter, the follow-up to 2008's best-selling Harps and Angels, in August 2017 to widespread critical acclaim. "A collection of mordant musical entertainments that moves deftly from the sharply political to the deeply personal, from the Cuban Missile Crisis and Putin to songs of love and death that glide gracefully and cut deep," wrote Mojo, which rated it one of the best albums of the year, as did Uncut magazine, which proclaimed: "Each satirical sketch is lavishly arranged like a miniature film score, with multiple characters, shifting points of view and dramatic lurches in musical style." In the words of the Daily Telegraph, "Newman has made an album that is a match for anything in his canon. Both topical and timeless."

    To pick up a copy of Dark Matter, head to JB Hi-Fi, iTunes, Amazon, or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout, and listen now on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker's Suite for Max Brown is out now via a newly formed partnership between International Anthem and Nonesuch Records. The album, named for and dedicated to Parker's mother, features nine original songs as well as "Gnarciss," an interpretation of Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus," and John Coltrane's "After the Rain." Parker plays the majority of the instruments on the record. "The veteran guitarist has created an effortlessly detailed album, full of tradition and experimentation that spans generations," says Pitchfork. "It lives at the vanguard of new jazz music."
