    Watch: Daughter of Swords Shares "Fields of Gold" Lyric Video from Forthcoming Album, "Dawnbreaker"

    Daughter of Swords, aka Mountain Man's Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, has shared a new song, "Fields of Gold," from her upcoming album, Dawnbreaker. You can watch the lyric video, which features drawings by Sauser-Monnig and animation by Robert Edridge-Waks, below. Stereogum, which premiered the video, says of the track: "It shimmers and shines like a ray of light, a true field of gold if you will."

    Of the song Sauser-Monnig says "'Fields of Gold' is a car song. It's about that beautiful sense of possibility you get when you're driving long distances and the facts of your life lift away enough to let you imagine parallel versions of your life playing out in all the unknown places you're moving through."

    Dawnbreaker is due June 28 on Nonesuch Records and is available to pre-order on iTunes and the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of the title track, "Fields of Gold," "Shining Woman," and "Gem"; Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive, limited-edition print created and signed by Sauser-Monnig.

    Daughter of Swords was the special guest of Iron & Wine and Calexico at Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, last night. The tour continues with Mandolin Orange this week and more throughout the year. See below for details; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Jeremy Denk launched Bach's Well-Tempered Lens, a series of online events for WNYC/WQXR's The Greene Space in NYC with a deep dive into Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier Book I. Denk was at the piano performing and doing analysis and interpretation from his upstate barn. "When I started practicing it, I felt that I was plugged into a kind of contentment that I wasn't used to having," Denk says. "It made me feel a kind of happiness and a kind of at-oneness with time that I wasn't really used to." You can watch it here.
