Published Jun 13, 2012Known to many as the frontwoman for currently on-hiatus French electronic pop veterans Stereolab, Laetitia Sadier is slated to release her second solo album later this summer, and she has just announced a supporting North American tour.
Silencio arrives on July 24 via Drag City and the sophomore effort has been described in a press release as "an album exploring the individual connection to a deeper self, placed in a broader environment, in a similarly fresh kind of way."
To promote the new record, she will be embarking on a North American tour that kicks off September 15 in Chicago. Canadian stops along the way include Toronto on September 18 and Montreal the following night. Check out the full listing of shows below.
