Dark Matter – August 4th 2017
Dark Matter, Randy Newman’s first album of new material in nine years, 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.
Nonesuch Store 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
