Watch: The Wainwright Sisters live in session @ 363 Oxford Street

As a musical family, the Wainwrights need little introduction. As the offspring of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, brother and sister Rufus and Martha Wainwright have already established themselves as successful singer-songwriters in their own right, but the musical talent in the family doesn't stop there; their half-sister Lucy Wainwright Roche - the daughter of Loudon and singer-songwriter Suzzy Roche - also has two solo albums to her name already, but while Rufus, Martha and Lucy have all performed on stage together many times in various combinations, the siblings have - up until now - yet to release a whol album together.

However, that all changes today with the arrival of Songs in the Dark, a collaboration between Martha and Lucy that arrives in stores today (Friday November 13th). A collection of original material, covers and arrangements of traditional songs, Songs in the Dark sees them unite under the banner 'The Wainwright Sisters' and the pair treated us to an exclusive performance of two tracks from the new record (which you can preview and purchase on the right-hand side of this page).

Watch the videos of Martha and Lucy performing 'Hobo's Lullaby' and 'Runs in the Family' below...
