Indie rock singer and guitarist Jenny Lewis has announced her plans to return with new music and a spring headlining tour in 2019. The former Rilo Kiley member will release her follow-up studio effort to 2014’s The Voyager this spring with On the Line, an 11-track album scheduled to arrive sometime next spring, although the official release date wasn’t revealed.

According to Pitchfork, her first solo album in five years will feature contributions from Beck, Ringo Starr, Ryan Adams, Wolf Bros bassist and producer Don Was, Benmont Tench of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and drummer Jim Keltner.

Fans can assume the new album will arrive sometime ahead of, or during the spring months, as that is when Lewis will head back out on the road for a run of North American shows which are scheduled to begin in late March. The 25-date headlining tour starts on March 26th in Bloomington, Illinois and continues over the next two months before wrapping with a show in San Diego on May 26th. Notable stops on the spring tour includes scheduled shows at The Riviera Theatre in Chicago, IL (3/30); Canton Hall in Dallas, TX (4/5); Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, GA (4/12); Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA (5/11); Ogden Theatre in Denver, CO (5/16; And Moore Theatre in Seattle, WA (5/21), just to name a few. The full list of spring tour dates can be referenced below.

Lewis had previously worked with Ryan Adams on producing her Voyager LP, which would go on to crack the top 10 on the Billboard 200 album sales chart in the U.S., peaking at number nine. Lewis would also make a point to hit the North American festival circuit in the months that surround its July release that summer, so fans should be on the lookout for her name to appear on major festival posters when lineups begin arriving in the coming months.

In the years since her Voyager album cycle, Lewis also teamed up with Au Revoir Simone‘s Erika Forster and The Like‘s Tennessee Thomas to form an all-female rock trio named Nice As F*ck. The trio released their debut, self-titled LP in June of 2016. Lewis also appeared on a St. Vincent single in 2017 titled “Pills”.

Tickets for Lewis’ newly announced spring tour will be going on sale starting December 7th at 10 a.m. local time, and can be found on the tour page of her official website.
