Jonathan Wilson’s New Album ‘Rare Birds’ Streaming Now via NPR Music

Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Jonathan Wilson (Father John Misty, Karen Elson, Conor Oberst), returns with his third solo release on Bella Union on March 2nd, 2018. It’s currently streaming exclusively as part of NPR Music’s First Listen series. The ambitious “maximalist” album, titled Rare Birds, features contributions from Father John Misty, Lucius, Lana Del Reyand New Age music legend Laraaji.  The album is receiving rave reviews, including 4 stars from British music bible MOJO.

A highly sought after record producer, North Carolina native Wilson had a busy 2017, producing Father John Misty‘s Grammy nominated Pure Comedy and touring arenas around the globe as a guitarist and vocalist for Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters (for whom he also contributed to the Grammy nominated Is This The Life We Really Want?album). Wilson also saw widespread acclaim heaped on Karen Elson‘s sophomore LP Double Roses, which he recorded with her in Los Angeles in 2016. But 2018 looks to be even more active as he’ll be continuing on with the worldwide Waters tour, releasing Rare Birds and completing a headline tour of US and Europe in the spring.
