Tracy Chapman will tour Europe in November as part of the international Where You Live Tour in support of her new album Where You Live, which will be released on September 12 by Elektra Records. The tour will showcase the talents of a truly individual voice on the modern musical landscape. An eloquent teller of stories that are at once intimate and universal, Tracy Chapman has created a body of work that has been as consistently compelling as it is honest and uncompromising.
Where You Live is Tracy Chapman’s seventh studio album. The set was co-produced by Chapman and Tchad Blake, who has lent his innovative production/mixing talent to recordings by an eclectic array of artists – among them Peter Gabriel, Pearl Jam, Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Elvis Costello, Los Lobos, Randy Newman, Richard Thompson, Suzanne Vega, and others. Chapman describes the songs on the album as being reflections about home, place, love, and memory. Joining Tracy in the studio were guitarist Joe Gore (Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, Eels), drummer/percussionist Quinn (Paula Cole, Belinda Carlisle, Patti LaBelle, Vesta Williams), with guest appearances by musician/producer Mitchell Froom (Blake’s frequent studio partner) and Chili Peppers bassist Flea, who plays on the album’s first single, ‘Change’.
