Singer/songwriter Gary Jules has announced a two-week East Coast tour, kicking off May 31 in Pittsburgh and continuing through dates in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and other markets before wrapping June 13 in Chapel Hill, NC.
Gary Jules is best known for the dramatic reinvention of Tears for Fears' "Mad World," from his 2001 sophomore album Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets. Jules went on to release two self-produced albums, 2006's Gary Jules and 2008's Bird before teaming back up with his "Mad World"/"Snakeoil" collaborator Michael Andrews last year to record a new album. Jules and Andrews are currently finishing mixing and preparing to shop the new album to labels.
Jules has made a demo version of his gorgeous new song "Horses" available in conjunction with the tour announcement. Listen below.
Last fall, Jules released an acoustic cover of Cheap Trick's "I Want You To Want Me" as a one-off single via iTunes. Stream it at SoundCloud here.
