Singer, activist, musician and cultural icon Joan Baez returns with Whistle Down the Wind, her first new album since 2008's Grammy-nominated Day After Tomorrow. The elegant 10-track collection was recorded over a ten-day period in Los Angeles, CA and was produced by Grammy Award-winner Joe Henry (Bonnie Raitt, Allen Toussaint). It finds Baez offering up peerless renditions of songs by artists she holds dear including Tom Waits, Josh Ritter, Anohni, Joe Henry, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Zoe Mulford, Eliza Gilkyson and Tim Eriksen. "I'm looking forward to being on the road with a beautiful new album about which I am truly proud," Baez notes. "I welcome the opportunity to share this new music as well as longtime favorites with my audiences around the world."
