The National’s Bryce Dessner is going classical on us.
The guitarist is set to make his recorded debut as a composer with release of Aheym, a four-track album that serves as a collaboration with the Kronos Quartet.
Originally written for the Kronos Quartet’s performance at the Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival in 2009, the album’s title track serves as a tribute to Dessner’s immigrant grandparents.
The album will also feature contributions from the Brooklyn Youth Choir.
Aheym is set for a Nov. 5 via ANTI-. View the album tracklist below.
