    Randy Newman's first album of new material in nine years, Dark Matter, is due August 4 on Nonesuch; vinyl on August 18. It is the follow-up to 2008’s acclaimed Harps and Angels, which the Guardian called "the work of a true master of popular song." Produced by long-time Newman collaborators Mitchell Froom, Lenny Waronker, and David Boucher, the album includes songs about Vladimir Putin, the Kennedy brothers, Sonny Boy Williamson, science vs. religion, love and loss, and more. Pre-orders include an instant download of the album track "Putin" and an exclusive print, a limited number of which will be signed by Newman.

    Laurie Anderson's work will be among the long-term installations in the newly renovated Building 6 at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA, opening this Sunday, May 28, 2017. Anderson was one of the museum's first artists-in-residence and has returned many times to develop and discuss works-in-progress. In Building 6, which nearly doubles the institution's current gallery footprint, she will create a multi-functional environment that will serve as a working studio and exhibition venue, highlighting both her creative process and over 10 years of archival work. Other artists represented in the space include Jenny Holzer, James Turrell, Louise Bourgeois, Robert Rauschenberg, and Gunnar Schonbeck.

Artist Spotlight

  • Crack-Up, Fleet Foxes' long-awaited and highly anticipated third album, comprises eleven songs, all written by Robin Pecknold. The album was co-produced by Pecknold and Skyler Skjelset, his longtime bandmate, collaborator, and childhood friend. Crack-Up comes six years after the release of Helplessness Blues and nearly a decade since the band's self-titled debut.

  • Sam Amidon's 2017 album The Following Mountain represents a new approach for the singer and multi-instrumentalist, who shifts from his previous norm of re-working traditional folk songs and presents nine wholly original compositions, with some lyrics drawing on traditional sources. The album was created with producer Leo Abrahams and frequent Amidon collaborator Shahzad Ismaily, with a rare guest appearance by drummer Milford Graves.

  • The Natalie Merchant Collection, a deluxe 10-CD box set, comprises all eight of her solo studio albums from the previous three decades; a new studio set featuring four new songs and six reinterpreted selections from her catalog, all arranged for string quartet; and a disc of rare and unreleased tracks. Includes a 100-page lyric book and pictorial history of the singer-songwriter's solo career, an archival treasure box for collectors.

  • Dark Matter, Randy Newman's first album of new material in nine years, is the follow-up to 2008’s acclaimed Harps and Angels, which the Guardian called "the work of a true master of popular song." Produced by long-time Newman collaborators Mitchell Froom, Lenny Waronker, and David Boucher, the album includes songs about Vladimir Putin, the Kennedy brothers, Sonny Boy Williamson, science vs. religion, love and loss, and more.

  • For more than 40 years, Kronos Quartet has pursued a singular artistic vision, combining a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to expanding the range and context of the string quartet. In the process, Kronos has become one of the most celebrated and influential groups of our time, performing thousands of concerts, releasing more than 50 recordings, commissioning more than 800 new works and arrangements, and collaborating with renowned artists from around the globe.
