LeAnn Rimes

The singer will embark on an intimate U.K. tour in February.

LeAnn Rimes will return with her 16th studio album, titled Remnants, on Feb. 3, 2017, the singer has revealed exclusively to Billboard.

The new set's first single, "Long Live Love" (below), was released last week. The album will also include previously released tracks "The Story" and "How to Kiss a Boy." Remnants is Rimes' first release with Sony RCA UK records worldwide.

Rimes is currently on her Today Is Christmas Tour, continuing Thursday at the Deadwood Mountain Grand in Deadwood, South Dakota, and wrapping Dec. 30 at Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek, Colorado. She'll follow up in the new year supporting Remnants with an intimate U.K. club tour, starting Feb. 16 at Bristol Colston Hall and ending Feb. 22 at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. See the full dates below.

"Hopefully, there comes a time in all of our lives where we stop resisting and start allowing ourselves to live a more authentic life," Rimes said in a statement. "Remnants are the pieces of ourselves we want to keep. Allowing one’s self to fall apart as gracefully as possible and then picking up the most authentic pieces or remnants of ourselves and moving forward."

On Remnants, Rimes worked with writers and producers Darrell Brown and Mark Batson (Alicia Keys, Skylar Grey, Eminem), as well as writers Toby Gad (Beyoncé, Madonna, Selena Gomez), Paul Barry (James Bay), Lindy Robbins (Jason Derulo and Demi Lovato) and Diane Warren (Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Whitney Houston), among others.
