Next month, Joan Baez is set to return her first new album in a decade, Whistle Down the Wind. To support the release, the veteran singer-songwriter has just announced a corresponding North American tour, which she says will be her final such outing.

“I’m looking forward to being on the road with a beautiful new album of which I am truly proud,” says Baez in a statement announcing the tour. “I welcome the opportunity to share this new music as well as longtime favorites with my audiences around the world.”

The North American leg of the tour kicks off on September 11th in Ithaca, New York and includes multiple nights at New York City’s Beacon Theatre and the Wang Theatre in Boston. The tour wraps up out west in the middle of November. See the full itinerary below, and grab tickets here.

Recorded over a ten-day period in Los Angeles, Whistle Down The Wind was produced by three-time Grammy Award-winner Joe Henry (Bonnie Raitt, Allen Toussaint and others) and includes songs written by Tom Waits, Anohni, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Josh Ritter, Eliza Gilkyson, and more. It marks Baez’s first full-length release since 2008’s Grammy-nominated album, Day After Tomorrow, and it’s currently streaming in full via NPR.
