Dark Matter is Randy Newman’s 12th studio album, and his first since 2008’s Harps and Angels. You can read an explanation of every song on the album here via Pitchfork. Dark Matter Q&A. Producers David Boucher, Lenny Waronker & Mitchell Froom. Writers Randy Newman. Background Vocals Alva Copeland, Alvin Chea, Clydene Jackson & 7 more.

Early in his career, Randy Newman used to regularly puzzle over his lack of commercial success, seemingly unaware that his trademark combination of New Orleans piano and wildly unreliable narrators was hardly a sure path to the Hit Parade. Decades later, Newman has found a side door to fame and wealth as a composer of film scores and likeable theme tunes for Pixar features. As a consequence, the man who created dark masterpieces like 12 Songs, Sail Away, and Good Old Boys is too busy to make the same sort of albums he released when he was a mere cult figure.

Dark Matter is Randy Newman’s first album of new songs in nine years and his smart mix of cynicism and sentiment is fully intact. I can think of no songwriter as fruitfully unhappy as Randy Newman. Not angsty-there are angstier-and not depressed in the poetic, European sense, but unhappy: that cow-eyed state in which the good stuff doesn’t feel that good and the bad stuff you just learn to laugh at. For 50 years he has delivered us obliquely sentimental, trend-free music about racists, losers, lovelorn deadbeats ( Marie ) and children who tell their parents to come visit anytime-but do call first ( So Long Dad ).

That's how Newman's 11th album begins – with a public spectacle involving a big cast of characters, weighty discourse on the future of the planet, and tempo changes every few measures. It ends with him alone, at the piano, deep in a nostalgic reverie about time, loss, and the bonds of family.
