While her Legacy! Legacy! album doesn’t arrive until May 10, Jamila Woods has already issued a special bulletin for 2019 tour dates.
The 25-city North American tour will kick off on May 22 at the Turf Club in St. Paul, Minnesota. The month-long trek will touchdown in other major cities, including Chicago, Brooklyn, N.Y., Boston, Dallas, and Los Angeles. The tour will end on June 27 at Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Tickets for the Legacy! Legacy! Tour go on sale this Friday, March 8 on her official website.
In an in-depth interview with DAZED magazine, Woods spoke on the creative direction for her upcoming release, Legacy! Legacy!.
“With this album, I had to think about how I could sample things in a way that’s innovative in terms of lyric writing – citing interviews with some of these people, or referencing essays or poems, as opposed to making allusions in my singing. I didn’t want to write about people who inspire me, but have them in the room with me. That definitely gave the writing more strength, and a reference to memory,” she said.
Last month, Woods tied in the release of a live version of her single “ZORA” with her album announcement.
