Lucinda Williams will head out on tour in support of her newest album, The Ghosts of Highway 20, with a five-night run in New York City followed by a night in Tarrytown in mid-March.

Folk/country-rocker Lucinda Williams announced a spring 2016 tour in support of The Ghosts of Highway 20, which will be released on Feb. 5. The tour focuses on the Northeast with stops at Philadelphia’s Cafe Live; New Haven, Connecticut’s College Street Music Hall; City Winery in New York City; Tarrytown Music Hall; Boston’s Paradise Rock Club; and the Opera House in Toronto, Ontario in Canada. There remainder of the tour is spread through the Midwest, Colorado and Texas.

The Ghosts of Highway 20 revolves around a narrative of Interstate 20, between Georgia and Texas, where Williams has strong connections, making it one of her most personal albums yet. From the press release:

The Ghosts of Highway 20 features some of the most expansive and experimental arrangements Williams has ever recorded. Revered guitarists Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz provide incredible sonic textures and ethereal tones that enhance her brilliant writing and wise and weathered vocals on the new 14-song collection.

Listen to the Wall Street Journal‘s premier of the track “If My Love Could Kill.”
