    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.

    The Staves release their first new album in six years, Good Woman, February 5, 2021, on Nonesuch Records in the US. Good Woman was written and recorded in a time of tremendous turmoil and change for the band, between the ending of relationships, the death of their beloved mother, and the birth of Emily’s first child. Mostly self-produced, with John Congleton’s assistance, the album is a testament to the Stavely-Taylors’ strength and that of other women; to sisters, mothers, and daughters; to love, loss, and change; and to trying to be a good woman.
