Alternate Take has returned to WDET.

In the premiere episode, I will take you on a global journey — first to Amsterdam with music from Weval, then to Japan with the late Ryuichi Sakamoto, a stop in Los Angeles with Poolside and Madlib, and back home to Detroit with Aretha Franklin and new music from Dabrye.

Plus, I share more new music and revisit Alternate Take classic cuts along the way.
