James McCartney takes on North America behind double-disc "EP Collection"
British singer/songwriter James McCartney will spend a month touring North America this spring behind "The Complete EP Collection."
McCartney, the only son of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney, will take on a trio of U.K. dates in early April before heading stateside for a headlining trek that kicks off May 11 in Amityville, NY. The 14-date, month-long outing pushes through a June 11 performance in Washington, D.C., and includes a couple of Canadian stops and festival appearances at Asbury Park, NJ's Bamboozle Festival (5/19) and Quincy, WA's Sasquatch! Festival (5/25).
The younger McCartney unveiled his most recent set, "The Complete EP Collection," in November. The two-disc effort includes two previously released EPs, "Available Light" and "Close at Hand," as well as five bonus tracks and two covers.
"I really wanted to wait until I had the strongest possible collection of songs before introducing them to the world," McCartney said in the bio section of his website. "I so believe in this music, and these songs."
The collection is a result of studio work over the course of two years, during which McCartney played most of the instruments himself, including bass, guitar and piano.
