    Watch: Punch Brothers Perform "Cattle in the Cane" From Upcoming Album, 'Hell on Church Street'

    Punch Brothers’ interpretation of the traditional tune "Cattle in the Cane," from the band’s forthcoming album Hell on Church Street, is out today on Nonesuch Records and can be heard here. Also out today is an in-the-studio video of the band playing the song, which you can watch below. Hell on Church Street, due January 14, 2022, is the band’s reimagining of, and homage to, the late bluegrass great Tony Rice’s landmark solo album Church Street Blues. The record features a collection of songs by Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Bill Monroe, and others. Preorders from the Nonesuch and Punch Brothers stores include a limited-edition print signed by the band while supplies last. Punch Brothers tour North America in support of the album beginning in January, with stops in Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and Boston, among others; see below for details and ticket links, or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Recorded at Nashville’s Blackbird Studio in November 2020, during a time of great uncertainty, Hell on Church Street was intended as both its own work of art and a gift to Rice, who died that Christmas. Punch Brothers said of Tony Rice and Church Street Blues: “No record (or musician) has had a greater impact on us, and we felt compelled to cover it in its entirety, with the objective of interacting with it in the same spirit of respect-fueled adventure that Tony brought to each of its pre-existing songs.”

    Hell on Church Street follows Punch Brothers’ critically acclaimed and Grammy Award-winning 2018 album All Ashore, which featured nine original songs written by the band. The Boston Globe said of All Ashore, “Punch Brothers have crafted a deeply meaningful and downright gorgeous record that takes the world for what it is, but doesn’t use that as an excuse to give up.”

    Punch Brothers—guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny, mandolinist/singer Chris Thile, and fiddler Gabe Witcher—formed in 2006 and released its first Nonesuch record, Punch, in 2008. In 2009, the band began a residency at NYC’s intimate Lower East Side club The Living Room, trying out new songs and ultimately spawning  Antifogmatic (2010). Those albums were followed by the critically praised Who’s Feeling Young Now? (also recorded at Blackbird Studio) in 2012 and 2015’s T Bone Burnett-producedThe Phosphorescent Blues.

    Acclaimed singer, songwriter, and musician Molly Tuttle will release her Nonesuch Records debut album, Crooked Tree, April 1 with her new bluegrass collective Golden Highway; vinyl follows May 13. You can watch Tuttle and her band perform the title track live here. Recorded live at Nashville’s Oceanway Studios, Crooked Tree was produced by Tuttle and Jerry Douglas and features collaborations with Sierra Hull, Old Crow Medicine Show, Margo Price, Billy Strings, Dan Tyminski and Gillian Welch. The album explores Tuttle’s love of bluegrass, which she discovered though her father, a music teacher and multi-instrumentalist, and her grandfather, a banjo player. Across these thirteen tracks, all of which were written/co-written by Tuttle, she honors the bluegrass tradition while also pushing the genre in new directions. Tuttle and Golden Highway—Bronwyn Keith-Hynes (fiddle), Dominick Leslie (mandolin), Shelby Means (bass), and Kyle Tuttle (banjo)—launch a US tour tonight.

    Laurie Anderson is on the Chatter podcast to talk with host Shane Harris about her work, particularly as it relates to the podcast's focus on the intersection of art and national security, including her piece Habeas Corpus, her surprise 1981 hit single "O Superman," and her 2015 film Heart of a Dog. You can hear their conversation here. Nonesuch Records reissued Laurie Anderson's debut album, Big Science, which features "O Superman," on red vinyl last year. Remixes of two tracks from the album were recently released: the title track, remixed by Arca, and "Sweaters," by Sam Gendel.
