Bruce Hornsby Adds Tour Dates For New Album

Share This:

The pianist, singer and songwriter, Bruce Hornsby, has announced his first European tour in 15 years, to support his new album, Absolute Zero. The album from the three-time Grammy award winner arrived April 12 and followed the release of 2016’s Rehab Reunion. Listen to several tracks below.

On June 24, Hornsby revealed six European dates for November. These follow an extensive run of U.S. shows with the Noisemakers, including intimate showcase performances. Tickets are available here and here.

On his return to the UK and Europe and the upcoming shows, Hornsby said “It’s been fifteen years since I played in Europe, and six since I did two concerts in the U.K. The beautiful response to Absolute Zero led to this revitalized interest in having me come over and play these dates, and I look forward to roaming through thirty-three years of musical evolution.”

The genesis of Absolute Zero began within Hornsby’s work as a film composer for writer-director Spike Lee. Hornsby started collaborating with Lee in 1992; ultimately, in 2008, he began scoring for Lee.

Predominantly produced by Hornsby, the 10-track album includes added production from Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Andrew Bird, Public Image Ltd.) and Brad Cook (Sharon Van Etten, Hiss Golden Messenger). Absolute Zero also includes musical contributions from yMusic, the Staves, Blake Mills, Jack DeJohnette, Sean Carey, the Orchestra of St. Hanks (Frost School/Univ. of Miami), Hornsby’s longtime band the Noisemakers and more. The track “Cast-Off” was co-written with Vernon, who also duets with Hornsby on the track, while “Take You There (Misty)” was co-written with Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter.
