Tomberlin shared her first single of the year, "idkwntht," last month, and now she's announced it's from her new album, i don't know who needs to hear this..., due out April 29 via Saddle Creek. The album was co-produced by Philip Weinrobe, and features contributions from Stuart Bogie, Shahzad Ismaily, Cass McCombs, Gyða Valtýsdóttir, Felix Walworth, and Doug Wieselman. "My first record, I made it without knowing I was making it," she says. "I was writing songs to process stuff from my personal life as it was happening, and then suddenly everything was happening really fast. Record label, tour, press, all this momentum and a lot of advice about my career, which, you know, I never even expected to have. So I think when I started to write the second record, I felt a lot of pressure to make it sound collected and profound, almost like a book—chapters, a narrative, everything nicely wrapped up."

She's also shared a new single, "happy accident," which features Cass McCombs on guitar, Felix Walworth on drums, and Philip Weinrobe on bass. "'happy accident’ is a song about relational obscurity," Tomberlin says. "Trying to sort out who you are or who you were to someone. Is this relationship romantic or is it just sex? Do you want to spend time with me or are you just bored? Do I make my own decisions that are good for me or are my decisions predominantly based on what I think you might want or need? I was kind of walking through moments in previous relationships in my life. I wanna know why someone wants to get to know me. Do you want to know me or just your idea of me? Do I want to know you or just my idea of you?” Watch the accompanying video below.

Tomberlin heads out on a solo tour of Europe and the UK in April, followed by a full-band US tour in May. The US shows are with Jana Horn, and you can see all dates below.

The tour wraps up with an NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 10. Tickets to that, and all dates, go on sale Friday, February 18 at 10 AM local time.
