speaks onstage at the ASCAP Centennial Awards at Waldorf Astoria Hotel on November 17, 2014 in New York City.

Folk legend and recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Joan Baez has announced her first LP in a decade. Whistle Down the Wind will include a number of covers–including  ANOHNI‘S “Another World,” Mary Chapin Carpenter’s “The Things We Are Made Of,” and Tom Waits‘ “Whistle Down the Wind,” the album’s lead single–as well as several original songs. “What’s happened, and I didn’t do it on purpose, but the songs have become mine,” Baez said to Rolling Stone. “That’s when I know I’m on the right track.” Find her take on “Whistle Down the Wind” and the full tracklist below. Whistle Down the Wind is out March 2.
