Leon Bridges planning debut LP, touring (dates & video)
photo: Leon Bridges at Warsaw last month (more by Greg Cristman)
Fort Worth, TX soul singer Leon Bridges plans to release his debut album later this year on Columbia Records, co-produced by Austin Jenkins of White Denim (whose members have backed him live), and ahead of that he put out the "Coming Home" / "Better Man" single last month. Leon just made a video for "Coming Home." You can watch that, and stream "Better Man" and the more recently-surfaced track "Lisa Sawyer," below.
Leon recently wrapped up shows with Sharon Van Etten (maybe you caught him at Warsaw?) and he's opening a leg of the upcoming Lord Huron tour. He's not on the NYC date, but he returns here for a headlining show on June 23 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/6) at noon with an AmEx presale starting today (3/4) at noon.
All dates are listed, with the video and song streams, below...
