French multi-instrumentalist Cecile Schott, aka Colleen, released her new album, Captain of None, earlier this year on Thrill Jockey. It's an excellent record, led by Cecile's hushed vocals and viola, that has hints of modern classical and the avant-garde but really sounds like pop music at heart. The video for the song "I'm Kin" just came out today, and you can check that out below.

Colleen is also going on her first US tour in eight years, beginning in San Francisco this Thursday (6/11). The tour hits NYC on June 23 at Subculture. That's a Wordless Music-presented show that also includes pianist Katya Mihailova opening. Tickets are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with the new video, below...
