Rhiannon Giddens and her band were on CBS Saturday Morning to perform a Saturday Sessions set of three songs from her new album, You’re the One: “Too Little, Too Late, Too Bad,” the title track, and “If You Don’t Know How Sweet It Is,” a web exclusive. You can watch all three performances here:

You’re the One is Giddens’ third solo studio album and her first of all original songs. This collection of twelve tunes written over the course of her career bursts with life-affirming energy, drawing from the folk music she knows so deeply and its pop descendants. The album was produced by Jack Splash (Kendrick Lamar, Solange, Alicia Keys, Valerie June) and recorded with an ensemble including Giddens' closest musical collaborators from the past decade, a string section, and Miami Horns. The lone featured guest on the album is Jason Isbell on “Yet to Be.” You can hear it and pick up a copy here.

"Giddens melds the past and present, writing a bold new future for herself in the process," says Rolling Stone. "One of Americana music's most vital voices expands her sound without abandoning her roots." "It’s easy to hear the joyous spirit in which she’s singing these songs," says Folk Alley, "and Giddens delivers a little masterpiece of an album that showcases her commanding presence as a singer and songwriter." Uncut calls the album an “accomplished tour d’horizon by [a] prolific polymath.” All About Jazz says: "You're the One is yet another extraordinary offering from a great American musician whose work is consistently and superbly 'beyond category,' to quote Duke Ellington." The Arts Desk says: "Mingling Memphis-style horns with an Appalachian feel and her own particular soulful Americana, this isn't tricksy music, just upfront, inclusive, immediate and human." Of the title track, the New York Times says “the song explodes out of her string-band foundations—banjo and fiddle—into full-tilt rock choruses, bursting with euphoria.”

    DAVÓNE TINES & THE TRUTH’s new work ROBESON, which premiered last month at NYC’s Little Island, is due September 13 on Nonesuch. In ROBESON, Tines’ solo recording debut, the musician grapples with the legacy of a hero. Exploding the musical repertoire of Paul Robeson, Tines and his band the Truth—pianist John Bitoy and sound artist Khari Lucas—take listeners on a trip from the stage of Carnegie Hall to the floor of a Moscow hotel room in an attempt to understand an icon not through aspiring to his monumentality, but through connecting to his vulnerability. The album track “THE HOUSE I LIVE IN" and a video for it directed by Tines are available today.
