    Watch: Chris Thile Performs Talking Heads' "(Nothing But) Flowers" on "Live From Here"
    Live From Here

    Chris Thile gave a nod to his Nonesuch label mate David Byrne when he and the Live From Here band performed the Talking Heads' tune "(Nothing But) Flowers" on last weekend's episode of the public radio show. They were joined by special guests Maggie Rogers and Sarah Jarosz on backing vocals, members of the band Vulfpeck, and Punch Brothers banjoist Noam Pikelny to put the Live From Here spin on the classic song with additional help from the audience at The Town Hall in New York City—and probably more than a few listeners on the other end of the radio. You can watch it here:

    Another Nonesuch artist, Caetano Veloso, offered his own take on "(Nothing But) Flowers" on his 2004 English-language album, A Foreign Sound.

    And Veloso revisited the song, this time with David Byrne joining him, for their 2012 album together, Live at Carnegie Hall.

    Live From Here returns to The Town Hall this Saturday with special guests St. Vincent, Jon Batiste, Nickel Creek bandmate Sara Watkins, and Pikelny, and again the following Saturday with special guests Gaby Moreno, The Knights, and comedian Jim Breuer. Details and tickets available at livefromhere.org.

    Yola's debut solo album, Walk Through Fire, out next Friday, February 22, on Easy Eye Sound, is streaming in full all week as an NPR First Listen. Yola's "sonic palette, which spans country, folk, classic soul and '70s-era Britpop; her emotive songwriting, which oscillates between vulnerability and chest-pounding empowerment; and her truly powerful voice," says NPR Music's Brittney McKenna, "abounds on Walk Through Fire, ... [which] showcases Yola's otherworldly vocals and compelling songwriting." McKenna concludes: "It's the work of an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come."

    David Byrne's Nonesuch Records debut album, Grown Backwards, first released on March 16, 2004, will make its vinyl debut almost 15 years later, on March 15, 2019. The double-vinyl edition is the original album plus six additional tracks, including a duet with Caetano Veloso on their song "Dreamworld." It's "one of Byrne's most rewarding experiments yet," said the Guardian. "It fits alongside the best of his career and adds another solid release to a solo catalog which will hopefully become more cherished in time," said Pitchfork in 2004. "In 20 years, as we straighten our faces with botulism, braces, and stem cells, the album will stand up." Pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
