Jessy Lanza announces North American tour with DJ Taye

Jessy Lanza proclaimed in a recent TMT interview that she’s never lived in a big American city, but judging by her propensity for lengthy North American tours, she might just be aiming to achieve honorary residency in all of the cities that she frequents seemingly on the regular. Such honorary residencies would have as their theoretical perks: free airfare to and from the city (obviously), free room and board (obviously), and if Jessy should ever be in need of city-specific advice concerning attractions or what it would take to turn the main thoroughfare into an extremely long bouncy house, a personal concierge would appear literally at the snap of a finger. The concierge may or may not be human, but the point is, that person knows how to get things done.

Jessy’s recently announced North American tour, as you might’ve guessed, succeeds another North American tour that recently concluded, which had the Junior Boys supporting. Now Hyperdub colleague DJ Taye will be the musical accompaniment, and that certainly supplements Lanza’s expressed appreciation for the footwork scene in Chicago, plus her actual collaborations with at least two highly-touted footwork figures.

Jessy’s new album Oh No comes out May 14. Check the dates that begin in June below.
