This Path Tonight is due out April 15. Featuring 10 original songs, the LP marks Nash’s first solo record of new music in 14 years. Nash recorded the album with guitarist and producer Shane Fontayne.
“What a pleasure it was recording this album,” Nash said. “Shane and I had written 20 songs in a month and recorded them in eight days. The music has a different feel to my earlier albums although I hear echoes of each one. This journey of mine was one of self-discovery, of intense creation, of absolute passion.”
Fontayne is accompanying Nash on tour. Fans who pre-order This Path Tonight will get first dibs on tickets via Nash’s website beginning Dec. 1. Pre-orders are ongoing via Amazon and iTunes.

“When you strip a song down to its very essence, you either have a song worth singing… or you don’t,” Nash says. “Playing music with Shane Fontayne is and always will be very satisfying. He has an innate sense of ‘performance’ and of arrangement. He never loses sight of the fact that the song must ‘come alive,’ must have a reason for being sung in the first place. We want to look in the eyes of our audience, we want to know that we are connecting on a very real level. What a pleasure this tour will be for me.”
Additional presales are scheduled next week. Tickets go on sale to the general public Dec. 4. Nash is donating $1 per ticket sold to charity. He’s also once again working with the Guacamole Fund to raise money for charity via special benefit seats.
