Susanna Hoffs, singer-songwriter and founding member of 80’s pop-rock favorites The Bangles, has revealed plans for an autumn tour in support of her new album, Someday. She’ll make her way to Massachusetts for a performance at the Center for the Arts in Natick on Friday, November 2. Tickets for the show are available through the venue’s box office and website for $48. Opening the show will be Massachusetts native Chris Trapper.

Someday, Hoffs’ third solo studio effort and first in 16 years, was released this summer on her own label Baroque Folk. Produced and orchestrated by Mitchell Froom, the album is said to be love letter to the music of the 1960’s.

“The album was inspired by my yearning to sing songs that were as melodic and emotional as my favorite music of the 1960s,” explained Hoffs in a press release. “We recorded ten original songs, eight of which I wrote in a flurry over a period of a few months with Andrew Brassell. He’s a 27-year-old musician from Nashville, who’s been on the indie club scene there since he was a teenager. So the project started with me, this talented boy from Nashville, two guitars and a reverb pedal.”

Hoffs also updated a song called “Raining”, a song she wrote with Mike Campbell of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers back in 1989, for Someday. The video for lead single “Picture Me” is streaming below.
