Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
For Valerie June, songs are like living things. 'They never leave my head and my heart,' June says. 'Once a song is born and it comes to me, then it can stay with me.' Her next album, 'The Order of Time,' comes out March 10, 2017. On a recent visit to The Current, Valerie June chatted with Brian Oake and Jill Riley, and she performed three new songs from the forthcoming record.
Equipped with only a nylon-string acoustic guitar, Hamilton Leithauser stopped at The Current studio for a session hosted by Mark Wheat. The result is a stunning set of three heartstring-tugging songs from 'I Had a Dream That You Were Mine,' Leithauser's collaborative album with Rostam Batmanglij. There are even some Dylanesque overtones ... and that's not the only local connection.
