Seal shares "Soul 2" with Australia, North America
English R&B singer Seal plans to continue promoting last year's "Soul 2" with Australian and North American tour legs this spring and summer.
The award-winning singer begins the road work next week with an April 10 performance in Melbourne, Australia, followed by four more shows Down Under. The North American portion of the trek gets underway July 6 in Montreal, and ventures through 21 cities across the continent. The summertime excursion is currently slated to conclude Aug. 11 in Santa Rosa, CA.
Tickets for some dates are available now at the performer's website.
Seal released "Soul 2," his eighth studio effort, in November via Reprise Records. The 11-track set, produced in part by Trevor Horn and David Foster, contains soul classics, just like the preceding album, "Soul."
"It was something that we felt we wanted to do, but not in the typical way, so we went more for sort of connoisseurs' choices rather than the obvious hits," Seal explains at his website. "Essentially it's an album of love songs. However it's such as my habit that there has to be something that inspires me on a social-comment level and there has to be something that inspires me on a -- it's such an overused term, but on a spiritual level."
The latest release peaked at No. 8 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
