Grammy award winner Ray LaMontagne revealed cover art and the track listing for his upcoming fourth studio album Supernova, due out in May, and is set to launch a summer long tour in support.
According to Contact Music LaMontagne worked with Black Keys Dan Auerbach on Supernova, and already landed the #1 most added track at AAA as well as #1 on Spotify’s viral 50 chart with the release of the title track.
In an interview with Time Magazine LaMontagne revealed, “For the longest time these songs were eluding me. I felt like a kid trying to collect lightning bugs. I’d catch a glimpse out of the corner of my eye and run for it, but the light would go out just as I thought I’d gotten hold of one.” He went on to say he eventually stopped chasing the idea for the songs altogether, which, of course, is exactly the time his creativity starting flowing.
LaMontagne also announced an upcoming North American tour which, for a limited time, fans can receive a pre-sale code with a pre-order of Supernova from Amazon. Early access using the pre-sale codes is available between Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 12 PM local time and Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 10:00 PM local time. The Supernova Tour will launch in Maine on May 27 and make its way west finishing up in Seattle, Washington in mid August.
