World Cafe Playlist for 02/16/2024

Brittany Howard joins host Raina Douris

What Now, the title of Brittany Howard’s new album, is not only a rhetorical question about the uncertain state of the world. It’s also a nod to the wildly diverse – and often unexpected – sonic turns Howard takes on her sophomore solo effort. On the next World Cafe, Howard talks about experimenting with unconventional tools with producer Shawn Everett, everything from PVC pipes and garbage bags to crystal singing bowls.

Listen to the session here.
