As big fans of Punch Brothers’ Jon Brion-produced Antifogmatic album, we were thrilled to hear this week that they’ve teamed up with another awesome producer for their next full-length release: Who’s Feeling Young Now?, a 12-track set produced by Jacquire King (a man who’s helmed the boards for Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, and many other notables), will arrive on February 14 of next year via Nonesuch. Recorded at Nashville’s renowned Blackbird Studios, the record was put to tape in just three weeks time.
Given that these guys have unleashed many masterful takes on Radiohead in the past, it’s particularly exciting to see that a cover of “Kid A” has made the cut alongside original tunes and other cover renditions. What’s more, one of our favorite alt-country singer-songwriters of the past few years, Josh Ritter, joined band leader Chris Thile, Gabe Witcher, Noam Pikelny, Paul Kowert, and Chris Eldridge to co-write two new songs: “Hundred Dollars” and “New York City.”
We’re looking forward to hearing the full set come Valentine’s Day, but in the meantime a delicious preview is here in the form of the title track, now streaming and available to download in exchange for an e-mail address below:
