Nonesuch releases composer Jacob Cooper's label debut, Silver Threads, on April 28, 2014. The album comprises a six-song cycle performed by soprano Mellissa Hughes. Cooper wrote the first song, "Silver Threads," for Hughes in the winter of 2011, setting a haiku attributed to the famous Japanese poet Matsuo Bashō for voice and electronic track. To expand it into a full cycle (all for voice and track), he enlisted five other poets to write text that was inspired by the haiku: Greg Alan Brownderville, Tarfia Faizullah, Kristin Kelly, Dora Malech, and Zach Savich.
