SOPHIE AUSTER ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD, ‘NEXT TIME’, SPRING 2019 WORLD TOUR

This year’s spring belongs to soulful, world-traveled folk-pop musician Sophie Auster. The world-renowned New York native is gearing up to release ‘Next Time’, her first record in four years, on April 12th via Fieldhouse/BMG. Riding on the heels of singles “Mexico” and “Dance With Me”, Auster will release third single “Rising Sun” on March 15th.

‘Next Time’ follows 2015 effort ‘Dogs and Men’ and 2013 EP ‘Red Weather’. Written in 2016, the music was produced by Swedish musician Tore Johansson (New Order, Tom Jones, a-Ha), who Auster reached out to before flying to Sweden for the recording sessions. ‘Next Time’ marks her first time recording abroad in a completely isolated space—the ensuing sound, lush orchestral fantasies of romances abroad (“Mexico”), poetic remembrances of heartbreak (“Black Water”) and reflections on a unified ecstatic love (“Dance With Me”) are all threaded together by Auster’s haunting voice.

“Mexico” will be featured in John Turturro’s new film, Going Places, a spinoff ofThe Big Lebowski, centered around the notable character Jesus Quintana. The film also stars Audrey Tautou, Bobby Cannavale, Susan Sarandon, and Pete Davidson.

Auster’s tour will kicks off at SXSW in Austin and will take Auster through the States and then to Europe, ending in Portugal.
