NPR’s “All Songs Considered” took a listen to the new material.
After abandoning plans to open a doughnut shop, co-host Robin Hilton rejoins the program and is welcomed by host Bob Boilen, who shares an early preview of the upcoming New Pornographers album Brill Bruisers. It isn’t out until Aug. 26, but we’ve got the gloriously infectious title track.
Robin follows with “Change,” an uplifting ode to the power of love and appreciating what you have in life, from the just-announced Mapei album Hey Hey. Last fall, we featured the Stockholm-based singer’s song “Don’t Wait” on the show, shortly before it became a massive hit, propelled by Mapei’s soaring voice and inspired mix of soul and electronics.
