Tour kicks off July 13; Grammy winner also premieres lead single "Fools Gold."
Jill Scott will hit the road this summer on a 25-date headline tour commencing July 13. Kicking off in Pittsburgh, the tour will play in a combination of theaters and amphitheaters across the country before wrapping up August 28 in Phoenix.
The news follows Monday’s (May 4) world premiere of the three-time Grammy winner’s new single “Fools Gold,” via iHeartRadio's urban stations. Available now on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, the track is the lead single from Scott’s upcoming fifth studio album. Produced and co-written by Andre Harris, formerly of the production duo Dre and Vidal, the single is the follow-up to Scott’s earlier buzz track “You Don’t Know.” That song will also appear on Scott’s new album, whose title and release date are yet to be announced. The singer’s last album, 2011’s The Light of the Sun, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
