[stream] Joanna Newsom - "81"

Drag City have made a song called “81” from Joanna Newsom’s forthcoming triple album, Have One On Me, available as a stream this morning. Ah, the mystique grows. Unsurprisingly, it’s a beautiful harp-and-vocal only song. Perhaps a bit more surprising, the vocal performance from the typically divisive singer sounds quite a bit more immediate than either of her two previous albums. The song is also streaming at Gorilla vs. Bear and Stereogum. Have a listen:

Stream :: 81 (via Drag City)
Stream :: 81 (via GvsB)
Stream :: 81 (via Stereogum)
(from Have One On Me. Pre-order here)
