Off Her Upcoming Album, 

Shortly after the November 8th release of her new album, Weather (Naïve Records), Meshell Nedegeocell will kick off the first leg of her upcoming US tour dates.  The acclaimed and eclectic songwriter will be playing in the Philadelphia, Washington DC, and New York City areas with more US dates to be announced soon.   Produced by Grammy-winner Joe Henry (Aimee Mann, Solomon Burke, Ani DiFranco), Weather is the latest addition, to Meshell’s diverse catalog and is her ninth album in 20 years.

A strikingly organic record, the album finds Meshell experimenting with sparse, orchestral melodies paired with thoughtful lyrics, all performed by a band of fearless musicians. The album opens with the title track “Weather,” a spacey, soulful groove that sets the stage for the rest of the record. Tracks like “Oysters” and her cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel” find Meshell constructing hushed ballads, centered around mournful piano. These tracks are juxtaposed with Meshell’s defiant, soulful stomps on songs like “Rapid Fire” and “Dirty World.” The album also features all-star collaborations with the likes of Chris Connelly (ex-Revolting Cocks, Ministry), Benji Hughes, and Joe Henry.

Meshell US Tour Dates:

11/14:  Philadelphia, PA @ World Café Live
11/15:  Alexandria, VA @ Birchmere
11/16:  New York, NY @ Hiro Ballroom
