    Watch: Chris Thile and Tune-Yards' Merrill Garbus Perform "Sidewalks of New York"

    Mandolinist, singer, songwriter, and radio host Chris Thile joined Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards to perform "Sidewalks of New York," a 19th-century vaudeville song, for Spire Studios. Spire brought the two artists together for four hours to record the song and video, which premiered on Paste earlier today. You can watch the result below.

    Chris Thile joins his fellow Punch Brothers for the last leg of their big US summer tour starting at The Anthem in Washington, DC, on Thursday. Their new album, All Ashore, released in July, will be available on vinyl this Friday. Live From Here, the public radio show Thile hosts, returns for its new season in early October, and Thile begins his season as holder of Carnegie Hall's Debs Composer's Chair later that month.

    Tune-Yards will open for David Byrne on the next leg of his American Utopia tour, which begins this Friday in New Jersey and includes shows all along the US East Coast.
