Joanna Newsom is probably at a fun Emmys afterparty right now (her husband Andy Samberg killed it as the ceremony’s host), but she was kind enough to leave us a second taste of her forthcoming Divers. The album’s first single “Sapokanikan” made Stereogum’s lists of that week’s best songs and best videos. “Leaving The City” is another winner, a gentler baroque beauty with some dynamic mellotron flourishes. (That’s also her on marxophone and piano in addition to vocals and harp. Newsom’s brother Pete played drums.) The song’s on iTunes now and you can stream it below.
Divers is out 10/23 on Drag City.
