Rhiannon Giddens Debuts Track From Solo Album
Carolina Chocolate Drops and the New Basement Tapes’ Rhiannon Giddens is about to head out on her own with her debut solo album, ‘Tomorrow Is My Turn,’ and today (Dec. 15), she’s premiered ‘Black Is the Color.' Take a listen to the new song above, and then -- if you haven’t already -- press play on two other songs from ‘Tomorrow Is My Turn’: ‘Don’t Let It Trouble Your Mind’ and ‘Shake Sugaree.’
Giddens’ debut album was produced by T Bone Burnett, who also produced her work with Elvis Costello, Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and Marcus Mumford as the New Basement Tapes.
The singer-songwriter also has a new cover of George and Ira Gershwin’s ‘Love Is Here to Stay,’ which appears in a brand-new Apple commercial. The heartstring-pulling commercial follows a girl as she listens to her grandmother’s rendition of the tune (as sung by Giddens), and then modernizes the track with the help of -- you guessed it -- a bunch of Apple products. Check it out below:
‘Tomorrow Is My Turn’ will arrive on Feb. 10 via Nonesuch.
