A rare opportunity to hear the multi-platinum selling American singer in an intimate setting, as she returns with her first collection of entirely original songs in 13 years.

Natalie Merchant’s new self-titled solo album was released by Nonesuch Records on 6 May. Long appreciated for the depth and substance of her writing, she describes the new release as informed ‘by experience and keen observation,’ dealing with issues of ‘love gained and lost, regret, denial, surrender, greed, destructiveness, defeat, and occasional triumph.’

Her career began when, as a college student, she joined the seminal alternative rock band 10,000 Maniacs. Serving as lead vocalist, lyricist, and sometime pianist, Merchant released five critically acclaimed studio albums with the band, including In My Tribe (1987), Blind Man’s Zoo (1989), Our Time in Eden (1992), and MTV Unplugged (1993). Merchant left the group in 1993, after 12 years, to record her first solo album. Tigerlily (1995) was certified five-times platinum, and was followed by Ophelia (1998), and Motherland (2001).
