Valerie June Announces North American Headline Tour in Support of Upcoming New Album, 'The Order of Time'

"Her voice is, as always, a marvel of seeming guilelessness... imperfection as empathy." (New York Times)
Includes Performances in New York, Nashville, Memphis, Chicago and Austin


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - OCTOBER 26TH, 2016 - Valerie June has announced a North American headline tour in support of her forthcoming new album, 'The Order of Time,' slated for release on March 10th, 2017 (Concord Records). The announcement comes as June wraps up a series of performances this fall with Norah Jones and Sturgill Simpson. Tour dates below with more to be announced in the following weeks.

'The Order of Time' follows June's 2013 breakout LP, 'Pushin' Against a Stone,' which established her as one of America's "most intriguing, fully formed new talents" according to the New York Times. For this album, the Tennessee-bred, Brooklyn-based songwriter weaves electric blues, African rhythms, cosmic atmospherics and delicate soul into an inventive and wholly original rumination on love, family, struggle and the passing of time. More on the album here:

NPR posted the first track 'Astral Plane,' on Thursday, calling the track "wondrous." NPR's Ann Powers compares June's writing to Alice Walker or bell hooks. Read NPR's coverage here:

June has made memorable appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, CBS Saturday Morning, Rachael Ray, and Austin City Limits. She has toured with Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Norah Jones and Sturgill Simpson, and performed at Newport Folk Festival, Carnegie Hall, and much more.

(The European release of 'The Order of Time' will be detailed soon.)
