Originally planned to begin last fall, Krall’s tour in support of her new Wallflower album was delayed when the songstress experienced some health problems.  Now she has a calendar packed with dates stretching all the way to the end of August.  

Produced by mega-Grammy winner David Foster, Wallflower features Krall’s interpretations of classic pop songs, including The Mamas & The Papas’ “California Dreamin’,” 10cc’s “I’m Not In Love,”  and Elton John’s “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word.”   Krall also offers her take on a couple of Eagles tunes – “Desperado” and “I Can’t Tell You Why.”  The album’s title track is Krall’s version of the Bob Dylan classic.  Wallflower arrives Feb. 3 on Verve Records.

Krall will hit a couple of TV shows in early February.  You can see her on “Live! With Kelly and Michael Feb. 2 and on “The Late Show With David Letterman” Feb. 3.  Krall’s “Late Show” appearance will be her last performance on the program before Letterman leaves in May.
