Shawn Colvin to Perform Record Release Show in NYC Broadcast Live on WFUV, Announces Tour Dates

Shawn Colvin 2012 by Michael Wilson bw sq

Shawn Colvin, whose new album, All Fall Down, is due out June 5 on Nonesuch Records, will preview tracks from the album at New York City’s City Winery on June 4, one day prior to the album’s release. The show will be broadcast live on New York NPR member station WFUV, 90.7 FM. Fans in and outside of the New York metro area can enjoy the show online at wfuv.org. A consummate, natural and engaging performer, Colvin has a run of live shows in the lead up to and following the album’s release, including headlining shows, duo dates with Mary Chapin Carpenter, and shows as very special guest of Chris Isaak. The sets will include much-loved favorites as well as songs from the new album. See below for all of the currently scheduled tour dates; for additional information, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour. Check back for additional live dates to be added.

All Fall Down is Colvin’s first album to be produced by her longtime friend and cohort Buddy Miller (Robert Plant, Solomon Burke). Recorded in Nashville, with a group of stellar musicians, this is Colvin’s first album of new material in six years. The release of All Fall Down comes on the same date as William Morrow/HarperCollins publishes her memoir, Diamond in the Rough, which insightfully and candidly looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows. The wit, lyricism, and empathy found in the book are traits that have long characterized Colvin’s songwriting and her live performances.

For a limited time, Nonesuch Store pre-orders of both the album and the book will be autographed by Colvin. All album pre-orders also include an instant download of the title track, "All Fall Down." To reserve a copy, head to the Nonesuch Store now.

Is there a show in Carrboro? The Denver Botanical Gardens are not there...

I can't find my code for the discount.

Thanks, Scott. Quite right! We've updated that to reflect that the Denver Botanic Gardens are, indeed, in Denver!

Laurie, not sure what discount code you're looking for. Please e-mail us at info@nonesuch.com with details, thanks.

When is she coming to the UK??!! It's been too long.

I think that album cover would look better in color, and she had a tan, just sayin.
Whats the back cover look like? This time?

DOH:)
