Vinyl LP From Punch Brothers Lead
Thanks for Listening is a collection of new studio recordings of ten songs
originally written as Songs of the Week on A Prairie Home Companion, produced by
Thomas Bartlett. Chris Thile manned almost all of the stringed instruments on
the album and is joined by guest singers Sarah Jarosz, Gaby Moreno, and Aoife
"Right now, with how easy it is to be the talker on social media, how hard it
is to maintain focus or give something enough attention to appreciate it, we're
in a place where listening is a precious commodity," says Thile. "Thanks
for Listening is a celebration of people who haven't switched off, despite being
given every reason to do so."
Chris Thile, whom London's Independent calls "the most remarkable mandolinist
in the world," is the founding member and lead vocalist of Punch Brothers.
With broad influences including progressive bluegrass, classical, rock, and
jazz, Thile transcends the borders of conventionally circumscribed genres,
creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic.
As a soloist, Thile has released five previous albums. In 2011, Nonesuch Records
released the Grammy-nominated Sleep with One Eye Open, an album of duets with
guitarist Michael Daves. Thile has also collaborated with a pantheon of musical
innovators from multiple genres including Béla Fleck, Brad Mehldau, and Hilary
Hahn. For more than 15 years, Thile played in the wildly popular band Nickel
Creek, with which he released three albums, sold two million records, and was
awarded a Grammy.
