Robert Plant and his band the Sensational Space Shifters released a video of their performance of "Season's Song," from his album Carry Fire, at the O2 Apollo in Manchester, England, in November. 

Chris Thile will hold Carnegie Hall's Debs Composer's Chair for the 2018-19 season. His residency includes Live From Here Songs of the Week, intimate recitals of a new piece, a multi-artist evening of folk music, and a double bill of Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers.

Paul Thomas Anderson was on NPR's Fresh Air to discuss Phantom Thread. Jonny Greenwood's score "is so good," says host Terry Gross. "There's something so operatic about the movie because there's underscoring throughout almost the entire film." 

Rostam offers a new take on his song "Bike Dream," from his album Half-Light, and Nick Drake's "Pink Moon" in a new Spotify Singles set.

Chris Thile is on How to Be Amazing with Michael Ian Black. They discuss his life in music, from Nickel Creek to Punch Brothers to hosting Live From Here. "For me, music has always been this source of delight," Thile says; "it's a never-ending well of magic, ingenuity."

Sam Amidon performed songs from his albums The Following Mountain and Lily-O, joined by Chris Vatalaro, for Yellow Couch Sessions. "I've been a fan of Sam's music for quite a while now," says host Steven Foxbury, "and those two put on one hell of a show."
