Allen Stone Announces Biggest Headlining Tour To Date + New Album “Building Balance” Out This Friday
R&B singer-songwriter Allen Stone is hitting the road once again. On the heels of a one-of-kind karaoke tour that saw him belting hits from his own catalogue and sing-along smash hits like Journey’s “When The Lights Go Down”, the soulful singer-songwriter will embark on his biggest headlining tour supporting latest album ‘Building Balance’, out on November 8th via ATO Records.
Stone will also be performing on TODAY on December 4th and Jimmy Kimmel Live! on December 9th. The 35-date run promises an intimate and fun-loving night of Allen Stone diving into his catalogue and playing cuts from the new record, from sentimental “Brown-Eyed Lover” to touching ode “Give You Blue.” He will be hitting stopping in major cities such as New York City, LA, Washington DC, and more. Allen says, “I’m pumped to showcase ‘Building Balance’ the way it was intended. With a live band, for a live audience. I can’t wait to get back on the road and share this new music with my fans.”

Building Balance is a soul-stirring collection of songs, rooted in a mix of genres from 70s D.C. go-go music and hip-hop to soulful funk à la Stevie Wonder and is his third record. Allen recorded ‘Building Balance’ with three producers: Jaime Lidell, Nasri of MAGIC! (Shakira, Justin Bieber), and Jeremy Most (Emily King).The album itself, a textured amalgam of R&B and soul, comes as the result of a mix of work from co-writing sessions, boasting features with Vulfpeck and Emily King, and lyrics by Stone himself. Equal parts sentimental (“Brown Eyed Lover”, “Consider Me”) and replete with nostalgic funk (“Back to the Swing”, “Sweaters”), ‘Building Balance’ shows a singer-songwriter who has grown into his own crafted his strongest and most varied set of songs yet.
