Joan Armatrading is a performer who needs little introduction. The three-time Grammy nominee has released numerous albums over a career spanning forty years, earning a devoted cult following in the process. Now the legendary songstress and purveyor of finely tuned, emotionally charged music, is back with a new release. Billed as the “Me Myself I World Tour”, it is a concert DVD and CD release documenting her 2014/2015 solo world tour, which was billed as both her first world tour and “the last major tour” of her career. “Me Myself I World Tour” will be released on November 11th on 429 Records. The tour album – written, arranged and performed by Armatrading – was recorded in October of 2015 at The Barns at Wolf Trap, the intimate concert space of the world renowned DC area venue, and contains her biggest hits spanning her entire career. In addition, Joan is readying “The Tempest Songs”—a digital album of music composed for the Domar Warehouse’s upcoming run of “The Tempest.”
Today, Glide Magazine is excited to present an exclusive sneak peek of the soulful, bluesy tune “Empty Highway”. The live version of the song features only Joan Armatrading with a baby blue electric guitar, treating the intimate audience with her hauntingly beautiful voice and solemn lyrical tale.
