Hurray for the Riff Raff performs “Rosemary Tears,” from their album LIFE ON EARTH, in a new video filmed live in concert at Point Éphémère in Paris earlier this fall. It comes just as Hurray for the Riff Raff reunites with Bright Eyes on six shows of their North American fall tour in Illinois, Michigan, Toronto, Montreal, Providence, and at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. Hurray for the Riff Raff also joins NPR Music in a celebration of its 15th anniversary at Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club.

Hurray for the Riff Raff, aka Alynda Segarra, has released a new live video for the song “Rosemary Tears,” from their critically acclaimed 2022 Nonesuch debut album, LIFE ON EARTH. Segarra describes the track as: “A reflection on my experience with time and its passing. The realization that I cannot go back and fix what has been broken. Experiencing memory and time as something that loops on forever beside me, always feeling like the past is not far behind and that it is possible to jump back in. Mourning.” The video was filmed live in concert at Point Éphémère in Paris earlier this fall.

Hurray for the Riff Raff reunites with Bright Eyes for additional North American tour dates beginning this Sunday, November 6, including a concert at Brooklyn’s King Theatre. They also join NPR Music in a celebration of its fifteenth anniversary at Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club. See below for details and tickets; for all the latest, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

LIFE ON EARTH is a departure for the New Orleans-based Segarra. Its eleven new “nature punk” tracks on the theme of survival are music for a world in flux—songs about thriving, not just surviving, while disaster is happening. For their eighth full-length album, Segarra drew inspiration from The Clash, Beverly Glenn-Copeland, Bad Bunny, and the author of Emergent Strategy, adrienne maree brown. Recorded during the pandemic, Life on Earth was produced by Brad Cook (Waxahatchee, Bon Iver, Kevin Morby). You can get it and hear it here.

    Thomas Adès’ Dante—a ballet score in three acts based on Dante Alighieri’s La Divina Commedia—was recorded by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel in concert at Disney Hall for the premiere recording, due April 21 on Nonesuch Records. Dante was first performed at the Royal Opera House as part of Wayne McGregor’s The Dante Project for the Royal Ballet, with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and with designs by visual artist Tacita Dean. “In any new shortlist of great ballet scores by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Bartók, Ravel, Prokofiev, Britten, and Bernstein, Dante must newly be included for its musical invention alone,” exclaims the Los Angeles Times. “There is not a second in its 88 minutes that doesn’t delight. All of it is unexpected and wanted.” The collectable limited vinyl two-LP edition includes artwork by Dean and photography from the Royal Ballet’s performance.
