To celebrate the return of producer and co-host Robin Hilton, this week’s All Songs Considered is the first proper episode of all-new music this year. On this episode, three guys who have never had trouble cranking out songs — Leonard Cohen, The Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt and Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner — unveil cuts from their new albums. Also: a sneak preview from Lower Dens, an under-the-radar band from Baltimore that’s also readying a new release.
Song 13 in a series of 24 recordings to be created and released throughout 2011. This one’s a little bit country.
