New Worlds will be released in September and features Murray performing literary readings over chamber music led by cellist Jan Vogler, reports NME. The readings include works by Walt Whitman, Ernest Hemingway, and Mark Twain and the music features pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, Franz Schubert and Astor Piazzolla.
