    Watch: Randy Newman Performs From Home on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon"

    Randy Newman was the musical guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. He gave a performance from home of "Mr. President (Have Pity on the Working Man)," a song from his 1974 album, Good Old Boys. You can watch it below.

    "Maybe you’re cheatin' / Maybe you’re lyin' / Maybe you have lost your mind / Maybe you only think about yourself," go the closing lyrics. "Too late to run, too late to hide now / The time has come for us to say goodbye now / Mr. President, have pity on the working man."

    Randy Newman's latest release, the song "Stay Away," is a public service announcement for social distancing, proceeds from which support the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music in New Orleans.

    Tristan Perich’s Drift Multiply, for 50 violins and 50-channel 1-bit electronics, will be released November 13, 2020, on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records, and is available to preorder now. The piece, Perich’s largest work to date, is conducted by Douglas Perkins. Scored as one hundred individual lines of music, the piece blends violins and speakers into a cascading tapestry of tone, harmony, and noise. The violins perform from sheet music, while the speakers are each connected to custom-built circuit boards programmed to output 1-bit audio, the most basic digital waveforms made of just ones and zeroes.
