Live at the Ryman
with Neal Francis
Amos Lee has announced a coast-to-coast US tour this summer, kicking off just after Memorial Day at Los Angeles’ The Theatre at Ace Hotel before stops at iconic venues like Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater.
With new details of his return to the road, Lee has also shared the uplifting and joyous original “See The Light,” the Billboard chart-topping artist’s latest look at his upcoming new album Dreamland (out February 11 on Dualtone Records). The song finds Lee courageously opening up about struggles with isolation (“when I fall off the map / disappear without a trace”) and panic attacks (“when I can’t breathe in / and I’m falling out of line”) and the mantras he’s leaned on to overcome—see the light…hold on. Listen to “See The Light” and watch the accompanying visual, directed by GOODNICETHANKS and featuring Shaina Cardwell and Emerson Davis, here.
Recently, Lee also brought Dreamland to national television with an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, where he performed a special stripped-down version of the album’s “Worry No More” from the California coast. An enduring radio hit from the new record, “Worry No More” has been met with Top 5 success as it continues to climb both the AAA and Americana singles charts. Watch Amos’ performance of “Worry No More” on The Kelly Clarkson Show here.
“See The Light” and “Worry No More” are both cornerstones of Dreamland, an eleven-song collection which sees Lee taking perhaps his most profound turn inward to chronicle his own struggles with anxiety, loneliness and despair. The album channels Lee’s “greatest asset: the weathered voice which he uses to plumb emotional depths” (Pitchfork) as he crafts music “to help listeners heal” (Salon) and to destigmatize conversations around mental health. Pre-order Dreamland here.
