    Randy Newman's "Putin," From New Album "Dark Matter," Wins Grammy for Best Arrangement

    Congratulations to Randy Newman, whose song "Putin," from his album Dark Matter, has won the Grammy Award for Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals. "I'd like to thank the Recording Academy for this award," says Newman. "I worked hard on the arrangement and I’m proud of it. I appreciate the attention. Thank you. Please give me another one next year."

    Produced by long-time Newman collaborators Mitchell Froom, Lenny Waronker, and David Boucher, Dark Matter, his first album of new material in nine years, also includes songs about the Kennedy brothers, Sonny Boy Williamson, science vs. religion, love and loss, and more. NPR says Newman "remains first and foremost a craftsman of song, capable of telling ordinary stories in ways no one quite has before." The AP says Newman "is still at the top of his game."

    To pick up a copy of Dark Matter, head to 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.

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko)'s new album, All The Women In Me, is due September 27, 2019, on Nonesuch Records. The follow up to her breakout debut, Infinite Worlds, it is an artistic leap for Tamko, who wrote and produced the entire album. Guitar-driven melodies are largely absent, replaced by hybridized analog and digital arrangements. Pre-order in the Nonesuch Store—on limited blue vinyl, black vinyl, CD, and cassette—to download the track "Flood Hands" now and get an exclusive, limited-edition autographed print. Vagabon will tour this fall with headlining shows and a run with Angel Olsen.
