Rachael Yamagata will hit the road for an extensive run of headlining tour dates in North America. These career-spanning sets will also feature the premiere of a collection of new songs from her forthcoming album to be released in early 2015.
All. Good. Things.
French duo The Dove and The Wolf will open all dates.
Yamagata is also teaming up with Pledge Music for a second time, inviting her fans to join her through the entire process of making her new record and going on tour. Her new campaign is up and running and can be viewed at PledgeMusic.com.
Yamagata spoke about the new tunes, saying, "I woke one morning envisioning a sweat lodge of sorts - a healing, almost shamanic experience... going into a place to retrace the steps of past trauma and present turmoil - facing our life fears head on, but with the intention of exiting lighter and renewed. I keep seeing in others and feeling my own restlessness and I want to explore that discomfort. I've focused so much on the 'partnership' love in my themes and many of these new songs are reaching for a more self-revolved satisfaction. There are still moments of rehashing what happened in a relationship, the desperation of loneliness and so on, but the goal remains triumph over pain through its articulation."
Deep stuff! That's why she is one of our fave indie acts.
