Meshell Ndegeocello On The East Coast

The fabulous songstress has a short run of U.S. dates booked for June in support of her upcoming album.  Stops for Meshell Ndegeocello include New York, Baltimore and Philadelphia.

Now available for pre-order, Comet, Come To Me drops June 3.  The first song released from the long player is “Conviction.”

Ndegeocello’s 11th album features special guests Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) and Doyle Bramhall as well as long-time collaborators Christopher Bruce on guitar, keyboardist Jebin Bruni and Earl Havin on drums.

“Comet, Come To Me was a little labor but a lot of love.  It was made with my favorite collaborators, and it felt good to channel the sounds in my mind after having Nina in residence for a while,” Ndegeocello said, referencing her 2012 disc, Pour une Âme Souveraine: A Dedication to Nina Simone

“When I’m writing songs and recording the demos, I’m having my own awesome experience in my attic, or on a plane, or in a hotel room, just making my beats on my laptop.  Then I get together with these people that I have an intimate musical relationship with, and we bring the longs to life.”

Here are the dates:

June 3 – New York, N.Y., Le Poisson Rouge
June 4 – Baltimore, Md., Baltimore Soundstage
June 5 – Alexandria, Va., The Birchmere
