New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Guitar virtuoso Julian Lage has shared the new single "Word For Word," which is available now to stream or download. An official live performance video featuring the formidable trio of Lage, bassist Jorge Roeder, and drummer Dave King also premieres today. "Word For Word" is the latest single from Lage's upcoming new album, View With A Room, which arrives September 16 on Blue Note Records and can be pre-ordered now on vinyl, CD, or digital download. It follows the recently released first single, "Auditorium."

Lage will mark the arrival of View With A Room with a busy international live schedule, including an upcoming week-long stand at New York City's famed Village Vanguard (July 26-31), to be followed by his "View With A Room In Concert" U.S. tour this Fall. For complete details and ticket information, please visit

A stunning collection of 10 compelling original compositions, View With A Room sees Lage fulfilling a long-standing goal to "have lush orchestration combined with an organic sense of improvisation and the agility of a small ensemble" by expanding upon his core trio with the addition of six-string icon Bill Frisell. Having previously collaborated in several different contexts, including duo concerts and projects devised by John Zorn, the two musicians honed in on a shorthand musical vocabulary rich with references - spanning The Beach Boys, Keith Jarrett's American and European Quartets, and George Harrison's All Things Must Pass - to craft a subtle, eloquent weave that expertly manifests Lage's enhanced vision in atmospheric and incisive ways throughout the new collection.
"There's no one I would trust more than Bill Frisell to come into our trio ecosystem and be able to expand it while totally embracing it," Lage says. "It became a beautiful collaboration that achieved the Technicolor experience that I've been searching for."

Produced by Lage's wife and musical partner, singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy, at Brooklyn's Bridge Studios with engineer Mark Goodell, View With A Room marks Lage's second release via Blue Note Records, following last year's acclaimed label debut album, Squint. Lage's longtime friend and collaborator Armand Hirsch added integral post-production elements that bring the emotional intent of each song into focus.
