David Crosby Plots Fall Tour Behind ‘Lighthouse’ LP
David Crosby has announced a U.S. tour behind his upcoming fifth solo LP, Lighthouse. The 18-date trek launches November 18th in Atlanta and concludes December 16th in Ithaca, New York.
Crosby's new touring band will feature Snarky Puppy bandleader/Lighthouse producer Michael League, along with album contributors Becca Stevens and Michelle Willis. The setlist will include Lighthouse material alongside tracks spanning Crosby's career.
Lighthouse, which follows 2014's Croz, is out October 21st via GroundUP Music/Verve Label Group. In July, Crosby teased the new LP by releasing "Things We Do for Love," a delicate acoustic ballad written for his wife, Jan. Earlier this month, he debuted bluesy Manhattan tribute "The City."
Crosby co-wrote several Lighthouse tracks with League and was surprised by the Snarky Puppy member's versatility. "He’s an immensely talented musician," the singer-songwriter told The Wall Street Journal. "He was very sneaky, too. He didn't tell me he could play lead guitar. He didn't tell me he could sing. And he never told me he could write words. But when we sat down at my house, we wrote three songs in three days. I think the only person in my life that has been that good at writing and co-working with [me] is my son James. I love writing with someone else because the other guy always thinks of something you didn't."
Crosby kicked off a North American summer tour earlier this month, with previously scheduled dates running through September 15th.
