    Steve Reich's "Double Sextet" Available for Pre-Order with Limited-Edition, Signed Manuscript Page at Nonesuch.com

    The first recording of Steve Reich's Double Sextet and 2x5, due out on Nonesuch on September 14, is now available for pre-order in the Nonesuch Store, with high-quality, 320-kbps MP3s of the album included on release day. Starting today, the first 250 pre-orders in the Nonesuch Store include a special limited-edition score page from the piece Double Sextet, printed from a Reich manuscript and then signed by the composer. [Update: These scores are no longer available.]

    Double Sextet, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2009, is performed here by eighth blackbird. The Philadelphia Inquirer has called Double Sextet "among the finest pieces of our time ... more than earlier Reich, it tips from exaltation to menace on a dime.” Also on the album, Bang on a Can performs 2x5, which expands Reich's musical palate with rock instrumentation and which the group premiered last summer at the Manchester International Festival on a double bill with Kraftwerk.

    Lake Street Dive's new album, Obviously, will be released March 12 on Nonesuch. The album was produced by Mike Elizondo, a songwriting collaborator for Dr. Dre, Eminem, and 50 Cent and record producer for Fiona Apple and Mary J. Blige, among others. "Mike encouraged us to make bolder arrangement choices, take those chances and try those things," says bassist Bridget Kearney. "The record really is a success in what we set out to do: continue to challenge ourselves, continue to grow, and do things we’ve never done before." A new single, “Nobody’s Stopping You Now,” is out now, as is the previously released track "Making Do"; you can watch videos for both here. Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include a limited-edition, autographed print while supplies last.

    Vagabon has teamed up with Courtney Barnett for a cover inspired by Karen Dalton's version of "Reason to Believe," which was originally written and recorded by Tim Hardin in 1965 and covered by a wide range of artists since. After discovering Dalton's version, "I became obsessed," says Vagabon's Lætitia Tamko, "and so a few days after discovering it, I was encouraged to record a cover of it in my garage." Barnett adds "I'm a huge fan of Vagabon and Karen Dalton so this was a dream. They both have a voice that absolutely knocks the wind out of me." Vagabon has announced a livestream on January 29; tickets are available now.
