The fourth season of the innovative music series Live from the Artists Den will premiere nationwide on public television beginning February 3, 2012 (check local listings). The New York Emmy-nominated show connects music fans with a remarkable line-up of icons and emerging stars performing in unique and historic venues. The groundbreaking new season features Adele, The Fray, Death Cab for Cutie, Kid Rock, Iron and Wine, and Amos Lee with special guests Calexico. Online today, viewers can preview clips from the Adele episode on Hulu and Hulu Plus. The series is a production of Artists Den Entertainment in association with WNET New York Public Media, and is distributed by American Public Television.

"There's something for every music fan in our new season," says Artists Den Creator and Executive Producer Mark Lieberman. "We kick off with a rare, intimate look at Adele, the biggest star in music this year, and finish with Iron and Wine reimagined as an 11 piece band in a historic Atlanta theatre. Generous invitations from such remarkable locations as Graceland, the Brooklyn Museum, and more helped inspire our best season yet."

“For a fourth season, we are pleased to present Live from the Artists Den on public television,” said Neal Shapiro, president and CEO of WNET. “The series continues to offer a wide variety of music programming and cutting-edge recording artists in unique venues that our viewers expect. The series showcases our mission to present the best in the Arts in creative, innovative ways.”

"Nothing in life moves me as much as being on stage does,” said Adele, who earlier this week received 6 Grammy Nominations, at her Artists Den taping at Santa Monica Bay’s Woman’s Club. “I love the closeness of playing in small rooms, and this room was lovely and simple, just beautiful."
