Pokey LaFarge will release a new album, In The Blossom of Their Shade, on September 10 via New West. “This album is a result of my 2020 experience," Pokey says. "Before the pandemic, I was in a dark place but the pandemic actually created the much needed space for me to reflect. Turns out that being completely sedentary for once was a good thing. I found peace in the stillness. I was able to recalibrate what it is I do and why I’m doing it. Who I’m to do it with and most importantly, who I’m doing it for.” The first single off the record is the genial and jazzy "Get It ‘Fore It’s Gone," and you can watch the video for that below.

You can also catch Pokey on tour this fall (rescheduled from last year) where he'll be joined by Esther Rose, who released the terrific How Many Times earlier this year. Dates kick off October 6 in Cleveland, and include stops in Detroit, Milwaukee, Iowa City, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Chicago, Pittsburgh, NYC, Boston, Toronto and more. All dates are listed below.

The NYC show is at Bowery Ballroom on November 10. Tickets for Bowery and all dates of the tour go on sale Friday, June 18 at noon local time.
