Lalah Hathaway will headline her very own tour this winter to support her Honestly album, set to drop November 6 via Hathaway Entertainment/Caroline Distribution.
Kicking off on January 16, the Chicago native will showcase her low tones and soulful melodies with fans at The Pageant in St Louis, Missouri. She will travel across the nation to cities including Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, D.C. and Charlotte. The tour will end in Atlanta, Georgia at Center Stage on February 11.
In addition to unveiling tour dates, Lalah also released a socially conscious music video, exclusively with Billboard, for the title track of her new project. The moving visual consists of vivid images that capture moments from marches protests over the last three years including Ferguson, Black Lives Matters and most recently, the NFL and Charlottesville, Virginia.
Lalah tells Billboard, “When people see the video, I want them to consider the same song, the same idea, as a commentary on this time we are living in,” adds Hathaway. “I’m talking about falling out of love with America. Although I still have hope in this country and I still want to dream, this video is meant to symbolize how this time has made so many of us wake up to the nightmare of this country. And how we all just want the nightmare to end.”
