We’re counting the days until the remarkable multi-instrumentalist and composer Emily Wells joins us for two nights: on November 3 with Hanif Abdurraqib for a free conversation about their writing practices and then on November 4 for a performance with her ensemble.

To get ready for the performance we’ve put together this playlist of some our favorite Wells songs alongside some of her influences, collaborators, and original versions of songs she’s covered live. It demonstrates a wide and diverse range of interests—from Dylan to Depeche Mode to Wu-Tang Clan—and is just a taste of the unforgettable night of music that awaits.

Listen above.
