On January 12, 2010, an entry cryptically entitled “@!?*(%$#!!” was posted on the Drag City website. It contained a link which led to a short comic strip titled “Joanna Newsom ‘Have One on Me'” with a date of February 23, 2010. Later that day, it was confirmed by Spunk!, Newsom’s Australian label, that the title and date represented the title of Newsom’s upcoming album and its release date. On February 11, 2010, Pitchfork Media reported that Newsom would be the subject of a tribute book titled Visions of Joanna Newsom which has now been published by Roan Press and features a contribution from author and publisher Dave Eggers.

Newsom’s third studio album, Have One on Me, was released on February 23, 2010 in North America. A triple album recorded in Tokyo in 2009, it consists of over two hours’ worth of songs. Writing for the Los Angeles Times, Ann Powers praised the album’s variety, adding: “Newsom uses the songwriter’s default mode to explore how traditional love, for women, can be both the beginning and the end of possibility: a way to escape home and be exiled from it; to welcome children or be burdened by fertility; to be entrusted with secrets, or betrayed.” Throughout 2010, she toured Europe and North America to promote the record, supported by a five-piece band, and also appeared as a guest composer on the album How I Got Over by The Roots, released in June of that year. She was also selected by Matt Groening to perform at the edition of the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival he curated in May 2010 in Minehead, England.

Ward, Billy Bragg, Francesco Santocono, Guy Buttery and Owen Pallett, with all proceeds going to Oxfam America’s Pakistan Flood Relief Efforts.

2009

In 2009, she appeared in the music video for the song “Kids” by the group MGMT. Also in 2009, Newsom appeared as a guest harpist on the Moore Brothers’ album Aptos, and played piano on Golden Shoulders’ Get Reasonable. On March 28, 2009, she performed over two hours of new material at an unannounced concert in Big Sur, California with fellow Nevada City singer-lyricist Mariee Sioux under the pseudonym The Beatles’s. Those in attendance reported that about one-third of her new material was played primarily on piano, with a backing arrangement of banjo, violin, guitar and drums.

Critics noticed a change in Newsom’s voice on her album Have One on Me. In the spring of 2009, Newsom developed vocal cord nodules and could not speak or sing for two months. The recovery from the nodules and further “vocal modifications” changed her voice.

2006

Her second album Ys was released in November 2006, also by Drag City. The album features orchestrations and arrangements by Van Dyke Parks, engineering from Steve Albini and mixing by Drag City label-mate Jim O’Rourke. On a road trip, Bill Callahan recommended she listen to the album Song Cycle by Parks, which led to him being chosen to arrange her work on Ys. To support Ys, Newsom performed the album live in 2008 with the Brooklyn Philharmonic in New York City, and with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Sydney, Australia. Ys garnered Newsom wider exposure, charting at number 134 on the Billboard 200. The album was also nominated for a 2007 Shortlist Music Prize. As of 2010, Ys had sold 250,000 copies.

Newsom is a soprano. Her vocal style (in the November 2006 issue of The Wire, she described her voice as “untrainable”) has shadings of folk and Appalachian shaped-note timbres. Newsom has, however, expressed disappointment at comments that her singing is “child-like.”

2005

In 2005, Newsom had a brief relationship with Smog frontman Bill Callahan.

2004

Shortly thereafter, Newsom toured with Devendra Banhart and Vetiver to promote the album, and made an early UK appearance at the Green Man Festival in Wales. In December 2004, she performed with Smog and Weird War at the Drag City “It’s a Wonderful Next Life” Christmas party. She also appeared as a guest musician on Vetiver’s 2004 self-titled album, and the following year, on Vashti Bunyan’s Lookaftering (2005). The track “Sprout and the Bean” was featured in the 2008 horror film The Strangers.

2002

After recording and self-releasing two EPs in 2002, Newsom was signed to the independent label Drag City. Her debut album, The Milk-Eyed Mender, was released in 2004 to critical acclaim, and garnered Newsom an underground following. She would receive wider exposure with the release of Ys (2006), which charted at number 134 on the Billboard 200, and was nominated for a 2007 Shortlist Music Prize.

In 2002–03, after appearing as a guest musician on Nervous Cop’s self-titled collaboration album, Newsom recorded two EPs, Walnut Whales and Yarn and Glue. These homemade recordings were intended to serve as a document of her early work. These EPs were not intended for public distribution. At the suggestion of Noah Georgeson, her then-boyfriend and recording engineer of the EP, she burned several copies to sell at her early shows. Newsom’s friend and bandmate in Golden Shoulders, Adam Kline, gave one of her CDs to Will Oldham at a show in Nevada City. Oldham was impressed with Newsom’s music and asked her to tour with him. He also gave a copy of the CD to the owner of Drag City, his record label. Drag City signed Newsom and released her debut album The Milk-Eyed Mender in 2004.
