Alex Clare is on the road showcasing selections from his latest full-length, Tail of Lions, which was released here in the U.S. back in January. The album was preceded by its lead single “Tell Me What You Need.”
The Lateness of the Hour, the recording artist’s debut studio long-player, emerged in July 2011 on Island Records. Debuting at No. 48 on the Billboard 200, the album featured Clare’s biggest hit “Too Close,” which was used in an advertising campaign for Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9. The 12-track album also spawned the singles “Up All Night,” “Treading Water,” and “Hummingbird.”
Opening the show is Bobby Bazini, a French Canadian singer-songwriter. Bazini is supporting his third studio album, Summer Is Gone, which dropped in November 2016 on Universal Music Canada. The album, anchored by the single “C’est la vie,” was recorded with producer Martin Terefe, who has previously worked with the likes of James Blunt and Shawn Mendes.
Summer Is Gone is the follow-up to Bazini’s 2014 sophomore efffort, Where I Belong, which became the biggest-selling Canadian album of the year and earned the performer a JUNO nomination for Album of the Year.
