Multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles has announced plans to release her highly anticipated third studio album this summer through Epic Records. Recorded in Los Angeles and New York with producers including John O’Mahony (Coldplay, Metric) and Mark Endert (Fiona Apple, The Fray, Train), this album will continue to display Sara’s signature voice and stellar songwriting. The album’s first single, “Brave,” will be released on iTunes on April 23rd.
“I have never felt more open and more raw in my entire life. 2012 was a year of deconstruction for me personally,” said Bareilles. “I have been confronting some of my greatest fears in the last handful of months and have been amazed at how empowered I can feel when I muster up the courage to turn and growl back at those monsters under the bed. The songs on this album are a true reflection of everything I’ve come to experience in recent months and I'm going to celebrate that with the next most terrifying thing I can do…go back on the road…totally alone. Just me. And my piano. And maybe a guitar. And some whiskey. And some jokes. And my songs. I’m excited to share this next stage of my career with each and every one of my fans.”
Bareilles will embark be on an 18-city solo acoustic trek titled the “Brave Enough” tour starting on April 25th at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. and will go through May 23rd at the Highline Ballroom in New York. The tour will also hit other major US cities including Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles. Please see below for full routing/dates.
