Soul singer-songwriter Nneka will be heading out on a North American tour this summer. The upcoming trek will kick off on June 2nd in Seattle, WA, and make stops in big cities like Oakland, L.A., Chicago, Toronto, and Philly, before wrapping June 23rd in New York.
The new tour will support Nneka's forthcoming album, My Fairy Tales, due out May 26th via Bushqueen Music. The German/Nigerian songstress recorded the LP in France, Denmark, and Nigeria while living in Paris. Like her previous offerings, including 2011's 'Soul Is Heavy,' Nneka will continue to tackle personal and political issues.
"My Fairy Tales is a concept album, exploring the lives of Africans in the diaspora and the struggles they face," she explained. "How we cope hustling in 'another man's land,' but also the aspects of endurance, perseverance and gratitude."
