World Cafe's 2016 Preview

Jan 5, 2016

As we put 2015 to rest, World Cafe invites NPR Music's Ann Powers to take a look at musical offerings for the new year. Several major, established artists have announced new releases — including David Bowie, who has a marvelous, jazz-informed album called Blackstar coming out Jan. 8. Powers also spotlights a new release from Lucinda Williams, as well as a set of covers that the late Jeff Buckley recorded as demos and a new album from Philadelphia's Santigold.

NPR Music is bringing back their Tiny Desk contest, asking unknown bands and musicians all over the country to film themselves performing one song at a desk of their choice.

The contest will be sponsored for the second year by Lagunitas Brewing Company, and will secure a spot at the iconic performance space and a U.S. tour with NPR Music.
