New Music of 2012

When NPR's Bob Boilen created All Songs Considered, he wanted it to be a resource for music discovery. That was some 12 years ago and Boilen continues to introduce listeners to new music of all styles. Among his top picks of 2012 (so far) are songs ranging from feel-good pop and rich, complicated tunes to tracks for quiet reflection. Friday, Bob Boilen joins Doug to explain his list of new songs worth a listen.

Bob Boilen's Picks for 2012 (so far):

He has interviewed everyone from Isabel Allende to the Dalai Lama, and from Madeleine Albright to Desmond Tutu.
