Ray LaMontagne New Oct. Album, Tour


Extensive North American tour with Leona Naess.

By Fred


With his new album Gossip in the Grain en route, Ray LaMontagne will be kicking off an
extensive North American tour in conjunction with the record, which is due Oct.
14 on RCA. LaMontagne hits the road on Sept. 30 with a show in Indianapolis;
the tour wraps Nov. 9 in Seattle.
Opening for LaMontagne is Leona Naess, who herself has a new album, Thirteens, out Sept. 23 on Verve
Forecast (she also guests on LaMontagne’s record).

LaMontagne recorded with producer Ethan Johns in Box, England.
Unlike his two previous albums, Trouble and Till The Sun Turns Black, which were
largely solo affairs with Johns handling much of the instrumentation, Gossip In The Grain sees him joined by
members of his touring band, bassist Jennifer Condos and guitarist Eric Heywood
(with Johns on drum duties). According to his label, the album “touches upon a
range of styles and musical settings- spanning pastoral folk, railroad blues,
front porch country, and plangent balladry… his most creative and emotionally
expansive collection to date.”


Well, of course it is!
