Quinn XCII Announces 2019 Tour & Forthcoming Album 'From Michigan With Love': Exclusive

Less than 24 hours after teasing fans with a series of old home videos and tour footage, Quinn XCII announced Monday that his sophomore album, From Michigan With Love, is on the way at the top of 2019. And on top of an album, Quinn is making 2019 even bigger with a massive headlining tour, the Detroit-born pop singer-songwriter reveals exclusively on Billboard.

The tour will see Quinn hitting 30 cities in North America as well as eight in Europe, starting out in Amsterdam on Feb. 3 and then kicking off the North American leg on Feb. 19 in Indianapolis and wrapping on April 17 in Austin. Quinn -- who spent a majority of 2017 and the first half of 2018 touring -- is looking forward to hitting the road once again, but is even more excited about getting this new music to his fans.

“So much has happened in the last year while writing this project, both in my personal life and in my career," Quinn (whose birth name is Mikael Temrowski) explains of the album's inspiration. "I’ve grown a lot as a person and artist, I’ve gotten to work with a lot of new people, I’ve toured the world and gotten to meet so many amazing fans who have been supporting the music for years. With all of that comes a much better understanding of the music I want to make and the impact I want it to have."

From Michigan With Love will see the singer experimenting with a lot of different sounds and styles and, perhaps more notably, vulnerable topics he hasn't dived into before. "I’m opening up a lot about personal stuff like my struggles with anxiety," he says. "There’s still a lot of the classic Quinn stuff that you’re used to hearing too, but I’m definitely pushing my own boundaries forward with this new music also."

Quinn has teased this next chapter with two new songs: the Yoshi Flower-assisted "Werewolf" and the happily poignant "Sad Still."  Though the album doesn't have a release date just yet, with a two-and-a-half-month-long tour on the horizon, it seems Quinn XCII fans may have some more new tunes sooner than later.
