The almighty Joanna Newsom returns with a new album, Divers, on October 23 via Drag City.
It's been five years since Newsom's fantastic Have One On Me, but lead single "Sapokanikan" is as ever whimsical and ornately orchestrated as anything she has done before and hints to a phenomenal return. The record features arrangements from Nico Muhly, Dave Longstreth (of Dirty Projectors), and Ryan Francesconi and was recorded by the legendary Steve Albini (!!) and Noah Georgeson. The video for "Sapokanikan" was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.
