“This tour is a seismic shift for me….I am bringing out a full band for the first time in 15 years!” said Carlton. “My goal is to bring the enormous landscape in the album to life, every night.  The highs, the lows, the dreams in between. I am also thrilled to be sharing the stage with the fantastic songwriter Jenny O who will be opening all shows.”

Carlton gave fans a first taste of the upcoming albumwith the track and music video for “Future Pain.” The video, directed by Joshua Shoemaker (Margo Price, Hurray For The Riff Raff), Carlton plays three versions of herself, a changing person within an unchanging tradition of having a drink alone at the bar. She sings, “I’ve got nothing to lose and nothing to gain but future pain,” paying homage to past mistakes of her former self while foreshadowing a familiar future.
