    Watch: Devendra Banhart Performs from "Ma" on New Sounds' "Soundcheck"

    Devendra Banhart stopped by WNYC Studios as the guest on New Sounds' Soundcheck today to talk with host John Schaefer about his new album, Ma, and perform three songs from it: "Is This Nice?," "Carolina," and "Taking a Page." "The folk songwriter, visual artist, and poet Devendra Banhart offers tenderness, introspection, and space in music, poetry, and art," says Schaefer. You can watch the session below.

    Banhart heads to Rough Trade in Brooklyn this evening to spin some records in a DJ set and sign some of his own new album. He performs at Ohana Festival in Dana Point, California, next Friday and begins his tour in mid-October. Details at nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    To pick up a copy of Ma, out tomorrow on Nonesuch, head to your local record store, Amazon, iTunes, and the Nonesuch Store; the album can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
