Devendra Banhart stopped by New York City public radio station WFUV following the release of his new album, Ma, in September. He performed three songs from the new album and spoke with host Alisa Ali for an FUV Live session. You can now watch the live performances of the album tracks "Taking a Page," "Carolina," and "October 12" from the session below, and listen to the show on the air tonight on 90.7 FM in New York and online now at wfuv.org.



To pick up a copy of Ma, which the Los Angeles Times calls "sublimely understated, border-blurring folk rock," head to your local record store, Amazon, iTunes, and the Nonesuch Store; the album can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

The North American leg of Banhart's tour concludes with concerts in Montreal, Boston, Brooklyn, DC, and Philadelphia this week. In the New Year, he takes the show to Europe and the UK. For details and tickets, see below and visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

Banhart also spoke with Pitchfork for its The Song I Wish I Wrote series. His song choice: Joan Armatrading's "Willow." "I think this is the perfect song," he says. Hear why:

    k.d. lang is on The Rex Chapman Show with Josh Hopkins for an extensive conversation about her love of basketball, and the Portland Trail Blazers in particular, as well as her career in music. "Singing is an extension of your soul," lang says. "It was about opening up my true self. I don't think I would be a really good singer if I was trying to conform into a social idea of who I should be. I wouldn't sing the same." You can watch their conversation here.
