Jenny Lewis’s current album solo ‘The Voyager’ has been heralded as her finest collection to date with a succession of glowing reviews. Having last played here in 2011 as one half of Jenny & Johnny, the Californian singer-songwriter and former Rilo Kileyfrontwoman’s previously announced tour has been extended with the addition of a second London headline show, the iTunes and Electric Picnic festivals plus extra shows in Manchester and Birmingham:
29th – End of the Road Festival
30th – Glasgow, Art School
31st – Electric Picnic (added date)
2nd – London, iTunes Festival at The Roundhouse (support to Beck)
4th – Bestival
5th – London, Islington Assembly Hall
6th – Bristol, The Lantern
11th – London, Islington Assembly Hall (added date)
12th – Manchester, The Ritz (added date)
13th – Birmingham, The Library (added date)
Tickets for the headline shows are available now priced at £18.50 for London, and £15 for all other dates.
‘The Voyager’ is Lewis’s most deeply personal album to date, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of Rilo Kiley. The album’s rootsy, golden glow comes courtesy of Lewis and the artists she chose to produce various tracks, including Ryan Adams (who, alongside Mike Viola, produced all but three of the tracks), Beck, and Lewis’s long-term collaborator Johnathan Rice. ‘The Voyager’ finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness.
The album was launched with a memorable video for the track ‘Just One of the Guys’ which featured some famous guest stars in the shape of Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson.
