, Staff

Ingrid Michaelson has revealed plans for a spring tour in support of her forthcoming album, Lights Out. The New York-based indie-pop singer-songwriter will make her way to Massachusetts for a performance at Boston’s House of Blues on Monday, June 2. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $30 and $45. Storyman and Sugar + The Hi-Lows will also perform.

Lights Out, Michaelson’s sixth studio effort and follow-up to 2012’s Human Again, will be released on April 15. The recording process was very different this time around for the 34-year old. Recorded in New York, Los Angeles, and Nashville, the album features six producers and ten co-writers, including singer-songwriters Katie Herzig and Trent Dabbs, as well as the very in-demand Busbee (Pink, Katy Perry). Special guests include Mat Kearney (on “One Night Town”) and A Great Big World (on “Over You”).

“With every other record, I’ve always written all of the songs,” said Michaelson in a press release. “I’ve worked with one producer. And we’ve stayed in one room. I’ve been such a control freak about my songs! But if you can get with the right person, there are ideas you could never come up with. It totally opens doors.”

Fans can get a taste of Lights Out with lead single “Girls Chase Boys”, which is streaming below. Fans can also purchase the song on iTunes, along with another new tune called “Wondeful Unknown”.
