Joanna Newsom: Sapokanikan

There’s no voice quite like that of Joanna Newsom, and once again her signature warbling vocals and acute, whimsical songwriting play their part in track “Sapokanikan.” Supported by a brand new video by film auteur Paul Thomas Anderson, the song is the first off of Newsom’s forthcoming album Divers, due out on 23 October. Tinkling pianos, rich horns and the occasional drum flourish bolster Newsom’s poeticism, while the video of Newsom singing along NYC streets lends a casual edge to the extraordinary talent.
