    Watch: Natalie Merchant Performs on "The Tonight Show"

    Natalie Merchant was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. She performed the classic 10,000 Maniacs' song "These Are Days," joined by The Roots for the occasion, and gave an intimate online-exclusive performance of her song "Motherland." You can watch both below.

    Merchant spoke with BBC Radio 4's John Wilson for the new podcast These Three, about three songs: one she wrote ("Lulu," from her 2014 self-titled album), one she wishes she'd written (Bobbie Gentry's "Ode to Billie Joe"), and one she's working on now. You can hear the conversation at these3three.com.

    The two-week, sold-out A Summer Evening With Natalie Merchant tour of the US Northeast comes to a close in Hudson, New York, tonight. Merchant will receive the 2019 John Lennon Real Love Award and will lead a tribute concert of her favorite John Lennon and Beatles tunes at Symphony Space in New York City in December. The award is given in recognition of her artistic achievements and lifelong commitment to social activism and charitable causes. Proceeds benefit Theatre Within's free workshops at Gilda's Club NYC.

    The Natalie Merchant Collection, a deluxe 10-CD box set, was release in 2017. It comprises all eight of her solo studio albums from the previous three decades, as well as a new studio set featuring four new songs and six reinterpreted selections from her catalog, all arranged for string quartet, and a collection of rare and unreleased tracks recorded between 1998 and 2017: home studio demos, album outtakes, live tracks, and collaborations with artists like Billy Bragg, David Byrne, The Chieftains, and Cowboy Junkies. "Magnificent," exclaims Mojo in a five-star review, "a definitive and absorbing celebration of an artist with a singular voice and vision."

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko) has released a video for "Every Woman," a new song from her upcoming album, directed by Lino Asana and filmed on location in Mendocino County, CA. You can watch it here. "'Every Woman' is the thesis of my album," she says, "so I wanted the visuals to represent transparency and to create a world for this thesis statement to live inside of. It's an ode to all those who feel different and who actively search and fight for space." Vagabon begins a fall tour this week.
