    Watch: Laurie Anderson Talks 'Big Science' with BBC Two's 'Newsnight'
    BBC Two

    Laurie Anderson was on BBC Two's Newsnight last night to talk with presenter Kirsty Wark about her 1982 debut album, Big Science, which Nonesuch is releasing on red vinyl April 9, and more. "The themes in it—the ideas of transportation, politics, money, love—in a sense, they're universal," says Wark. "I suppose they work for every generation." "I was really happy when they decided to put that out again," Anderson says. "When I listened to it, it sounded pretty much like now." You can watch their conversation, which also touches on her role as NASA's first artist-in-residence, below.

    You can pre-order Big Science on red vinyl here.
