Pat Metheny has released “You Are,” from his forthcoming album, From This Place, due February 21 on Nonesuch Records. This follows the release of the album’s opening track, “America Undefined.” Both songs can be downloaded now with pre-orders of From This Place on vinyl and CD in the Pat Metheny Store and Nonesuch Store. The songs are also available to stream at Spotify and Apple Music. From This Place is also available for preorder on Bandcamp, iTunes, and Amazon.
The new album features ten compositions by Metheny, who is joined by his long-time drummer, Antonio Sanchez, Malaysian/Australian bassist Linda May Han Oh, and British pianist Gwilym Simcock as well as the Hollywood Studio Symphony conducted by Joel McNeely. Meshell Ndegeocello (vocals), Gregoire Maret (harmonica), and Luis Conte (percussion) are special guests on From This Place, Metheny’s first album of new material since 2014’s Kin. Metheny, Simcock, Oh, and Sanchez begin an extensive international tour in the New Year.
“From This Place?is one of the records I have been waiting to make my whole life,” Metheny says. “It is a kind of musical culmination, reflecting a wide range of expressions that have interested me over the years, scaled across a large canvas, presented in a way that offers the kind of opportunities for communication that can only be earned with a group of musicians who have spent hundreds of nights together on the bandstand.”
