Country and folk great Lyle Lovett has announced 12th of June, which is his 12th album and first in 10 years, and will be out May 13 via Verve, his first for the label. It was co-produced by Lyle and Chuck Ainlay and made with his Large Band, and features a mix of originals and standards.

The first single from 12th of June is the title track, a lovely ballad in Lyle's signature understated style. Watch the video for that below.

Lovett will be on tour starting next week with three shows in Dallas, and he'll hit NYC for six sold-out shows with his Large Band at City Winery on May 17-20. Tickets are on sale for the late shows on May 19 and 20, and you can join the waiting list for the other shows. He's also got June dates with Chris Isaak. All dates are listed below.
