Christopher Owens announced fresh beginnings this past summer when the singer/songwriter announced he’d no longer lead the critically adored duo Girls. The new year will see his solo plans swing into full motion, with his album Lysandre on January 15th (Turnstile/Fat Possum) and an album release show the same day at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall. From there Owens and the seven-piece he recorded the album with will head off to Toronto and Montreal before returning to the East Coast for the final clutch of dates.

Owens has already played some rather well-received shows, first in San Francisco and just last week at Le Poisson Rouge in New York. He’ll round out this year with a couple gigs in Europe before launching the US tour in support of Lysandre, which Owens has been teasing since 2010. The songs, he’s said, are inspired by the first time Girls hit the road, back in 2008, so longtime fans hopelessly hoping to spot Owens’ former band-mate JR White on stage can at least search for him in the lyrics instead. Advance tickets are available on Owens’ official website.
