Folks attending Pitchfork Festival this weekend (including Claire and Liz on our end) got a nice surprise from Joanna Newsom’s set. As you can see from the fan videos below, Newsom played some new songs. One (played on harp) is still untitled, while the others are the previously performed “Look And Despair” and “The Diver’s Wife.” All three are very much worth your time, but it was the untitled harp piece that really stunned me. Watch below, and keep an eye out for Joanna Newsom’s new album (and marriage to Andy Samberg) in the future.
