Andrew Cyrille's album The News carries forward the story from The Declaration of Musical Independence, the 2014 ECM recording described by Down Beat as "an unabashed exploration into time, pulse space and atmosphere…ambitious yet simple, rich yet stripped-down, challenging yet infinitely satisfying." The New York Times cited the album as evidence of a "late career renaissance" for the drummer.

A force in improvisation for more than sixty years, Cyrille has played across the landscape of jazz from Coleman Hawkins's The Hawk Relaxes to Cecil Taylor's Unit Structures, led his own bands, and worked extensively with Milford Graves, Walt Dickerson, David Murray, Muhal Richard Abrams, Oliver Lake, Reggie Workman and many, many more. His first ECM appearance was on 1970's Afternoon of a Georgia Faun, Marion Brown's album with Chick Corea, Anthony Braxton, Bennie Maupin and Jeanne Lee. Half a century later Cyrille appeared with his Lebroba trio with Wadada Leo Smith and Bill Frisell at Lincoln Center's 50th birthday tribute to the label.
