This week on All Songs Considered, youth and age find a way to meet in the middle. A still-kicking Tony Bennett teams up with the still freakishly young Lady Gaga on his new Duets II; Laura Veirs, who was very pregnant the last time she visited NPR, celebrates her new motherhood with a children's album; and Harold Budd, the wizened experimental composer who announced his retirement from music years ago, reemerges with one of the most beautiful albums of his career. Also on this episode: Exitmusic and Milagres, two New York bands with a fondness for echoing drums and spooky falsetto.

For a limited time, head to our First Listen series to hear new albums from Tony Bennett, Harold Budd and A.A. Bondy in their entirety.
