In anticipation of a forthcoming career retrospective boxed set on Nonesuch Records, Merchant’s concerts will span her thirty-year recording career, with songs from 10,000 Maniacs and from her solo albums. A string quartet joins Merchant and her regular band for the shows.
Nonesuch most recently released Natalie Merchant’s Paradise Is There: The New Tigerlily Recordings in 2015. This collection of all-new recordings revisits Merchant’s multi-platinum solo debut, Tigerlily, originally released in 1995 following her departure from 10,000 Maniacs. The release was accompanied by a documentary DVD.
Natalie Merchant is working with the organization, Food & Water which champions healthy food and clean water for all during her tour.
