In June, Nonesuch Records will release The Natalie Merchant Collection, a 10-disc CD box set that features all eight of her solo albums, a new collection (Butterfly) featuring four new songs and six reinterpretations of older songs, and a Rarities collection of rare and previously unreleased tracks. In support of the new collection, Merchant will tour the US this summer with a career-spanning set as Natalie Merchant: 3 Decades Of Song.
Back in March, we looked at the overlooked legacy of Merchant and her old band 10,000 Maniacs.
Check out her forthcoming 3 Decades Of Song tour dates and hear a reimagining of her Ophelia track “Frozen Charlotte” below.
