Sara Bareilles is releasing a new song, entitled “Brave” on April 23 and is embarking on a 18 city tour this spring, starting April 25.
It will be her first full-length album since 2010’s chart-topper Kaleidoscope Heart.
Since then, Bareilles appeared as a judge on NBC’s singing competition, “The Sing-Off” and released an EP, Once Upon Another Time.
Recorded in both Los Angeles and New York with producers like John O’Mahony (Coldplay, Metric) and Mark Endert (Fiona Apple, The Fray, Train), this album will continue to display Sara’s signature voice and unique songwriting.
About the album, Sarah says it’s the most honest thing she’s written.
“I have never felt more open and more raw in my entire life. 2012 was a year of deconstruction for me personally. I have been confronting some of my greatest fears in the last handful of months and have been amazed at how empowered I can feel when I muster up the courage to turn and growl back at those monsters under the bed. The songs on this album are a true reflection of everything I’ve come to experience in recent months and I’m going to celebrate that with the next most terrifying thing I can do…go back on the road…totally alone… I’m excited to share this next stage of my career with each and every one of my fans.”
The “Love Song” singer’s web site includes a video entitled “Sara is Making a Record”, which is 22 seconds of Sara banging around on different instruments.
