New Alex Ross book arrives in September 2010

The Rest Is Noise author Alex Ross announced on his website that he had sent off the manuscript of his next book to his publisher. Titled Listen to This, the book offers what Ross describes as a panoramic view of the music scene. "In the Preface, I say that the aim is to ‘approach music not as a self-sufficient sphere but as a way of knowing the world,’" Ross writes. Farrar, Straus and Giroux publishes the book at the end of September 2010.
