AMOS LEE RELEASES MY NEW MOON TODAY ON DUALTONE RECORDS
NORTH AMERICAN TOUR KICKS OFF SEPTEMBER 14
AT NEW YORK’S BEACON THEATRE
Toronto, ON – August 31, 2018 – When Amos Lee was writing My New Moon (out today on Dualtone Records), he described the album’s mission as to “expose myself to other people’s stories, embrace them, and experience others first.” My New Moon has been lauded as “the most personal and deeply felt of Lee’s seven studio albums” by Billboard, yet its roots are ultimately in the courage of others – from those Amos met through organizations like the Wounded Warrior Project and Musicians on Call, to the profound impact of Parkland and Charlottesville. Despite some heavy subject matter, the ten-song collection is a message of hope to the most resilient – “music to help listeners heal,” as Salon has put it. Listen to My New Moon here.
Watch Amos Lee’s “stunning” (NPR) acoustic performance of single, No More Darkness, No More Light, from the Virginia wilderness via World Cafe. Darkness has been a staple of AAA radio this summer, charting in the Top 20 most-played songs. NPR Music has named My New Moon an Album You Should Hear Now on today’s All Songs Considered podcast. Listen here, and hear Amos discussing the Charlottesville-inspired My New Moon B-side, Dying White Light with NPR’s 1A.
Helping Amos bring his purposeful vision to life on My New Moon are producer, Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Andrew Bird), and an incomparable group of studio aces: multi-instrumentalists, Ethan Gruska and Blake Mills, Benmont Tench and Patrick Warren on keyboards, Greg Leisz on pedal steel, Rob Moose on strings, and many others.
Amos will take My New Moon on the road from New York to California this fall, kicking off at NYC’s Beacon Theatre on September 14, following a special acoustic performance and Q&A with journalist, Alan Light, from The Strand's Rare Book Room on September 13.
