After the Steep Canyon Rangers accompanied Steve Martin and Edie Brickell on a live album last year, the North Carolina bluegrass band returns to its own devices with the upcoming new album Radio. Speakeasy premieres the title track today.

Led by bright fiddle and tight, interlocking harmony vocals, the track is a wide-eyed tribute to the magic of discovering music over the airwaves, with sly references to other songs salted into the lyrics.
