Natalie Merchant

Former 10,000 Maniacs singer Natalie Merchant is about to release her sixth solo album next week (5/6) via Nonesuch Records. It's self-titled, her first since 2010, and first of entirely original music since 2001. You can stream it in full over at the NY Times.

Natalie is supporting the new album on a tour which brings her to NYC on September 13 at Beacon Theater. Tickets for that show go on sale today (5/2) at 11 AM. You can also catch her not far from NYC sooner than that at New Brunswick's State Theatre on 7/8 (tickets) and Tarrytown Music Hall on 7/19 (tickets). All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, 10,000 Maniacs are also touring this year without Natalie (as they've been doing since her 1993 departure) and hitting NYC on June 5 & 6 at City Winery. Tickets for night 1 and night 2 are on sale now.

Lists of dates for both tours, plus a video of Natalie on VH1's Before They Were Rock Stars and a couple of her with Michael Stipe, below...
