    Randy Newman's debut performance on Austin City Limits will receive an encore broadcast when ACL, the longest-running live music television series in history, airs the 2011 episode dedicated exclusively to his work on PBS stations across the United States this weekend.

    "With songs that run the gamut from heartbreaking to satirical and a host of unforgettable film scores," says the show, "Randy Newman has used his many talents to create musical masterpieces widely recognized by generations of audiences."

    Newman's Austin City Limits debut first aired in November 2011, the same week his latest album, Live in London, was released on Nonesuch Records. The set list for this Saturday's show features 17 songs from throughout Newman's career, including favorites like "Short People," "Political Science," and "You Can Leave Your Hat On," each of which he performs on the Live in London CD+DVD as well. To pick up a copy of Live in London, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD+DVD orders include a free download of the music at checkout.

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi have released a new video for their rendition of the traditional American folk song “O Death,” from their new album, They're Calling Me Home. The video features illustrated vignettes of a story about death painted by Maeve Clancy, an Irish crankie roll artist. Giddens explains, “Crankies are a pre-electricity technology that pair a visual narrative, usually painted on a long piece of paper or cloth, 'cranked' by hand to the timing of the song.” You can watch it here.

    Chris Thile has released a new song, "Dionysus," from his forthcoming album, Laysongs, due June 4 on Nonesuch; you can hear it here. Laysongs is his first truly solo album: just Thile, his voice, and his mandolin, on new recordings of six original songs and three covers, all of which contextualize and banter with his ideas about spirituality. The album was recorded in a converted upstate New York church during the pandemic.
