NEW ALBUM: PJ MORTON | WATCH THE SUN
PJ Morton has released his thirteenth studio album, "Watch The Sun," which is his most “cohesive and seamless collection” thus far. "Watch The Sun" is regarded as “an unapologetic and expansive album about the challenges he has faced in life and love.” With features including Stevie Wonder, Alex Isley, Jill Scott, El DeBarge, Nas, JoJo, and more, It will uncover the storied musician at his most open and intentional. “With the world changing so quickly in the last couple of years, it called for a bunch of reflection,” Morton shared in a statement. “I reflected on what I wanted to change in my life and keep the same. What was left to say as an artist. I think these last couple of years taught us to identify what is truly important. It was important for me to tell an honest story on this album. The album is an unapologetically soulful painting about the true challenges in life and love.” Morton recorded his latest LP at Studio In The Country, located in Lousiana, as a means of escapism. The secluded space outside of New Orleans is also where Stevie Wonder recorded 1979’s "Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants." The illustrious genre-bending musician invites fans to experience his dynamic LP on some of music’s most influential stages. Spanning more than 35 shows nationwide plus international headlining appearances in Australia and Indonesia, the "Watch The Sun Tour" will include stops at the Apollo Theater in New York City, the Aretha Franklin Amphitheater in Detroit, the Theater at Ace Hotel in Los Angles, and the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Morton will also be visiting his hometown for exceptional performance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. This June, the tour kicks off in the U.S. and will wrap in early October.
