The trek begins June 8 in Northampton, Mass.; as previously reported, Feist's second album, "The Reminder," is due May 1 via Cherrytree/Interscope.
The artist is also set for a May 8 appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," with a "Jimmy Kimmel Live" booking in the works as well.
Feist's extensive touring in support of her 2004 debut, "Let It Die," was a major factor in how the new songs came to fruition. "The only way to really gauge where you're at musically is by the set list," she tells Billboard.com. "Every night, it was a mental photograph of where I was at and slowly, certain songs started to fly away. It's from the gut; I don't want to play that song tonight. The next step is, 'Well, what do I want to sing?' There was this really great lunge that started to happen."
