Tones And I is getting back to her roots, taking her music to the street.
With her highly anticipated debut album Welcome To The Madhouse set for release this Friday (July 16th), Tones let fans know this week that she’s packing up the van and setting off to busk around the country once more.
The Melbourne-based performer, who achieved a staggering amount of success off the back of ‘Dance Monkey’, cut her teeth as a busker around Byron Bay. Her origins as a busker turned global superstar has almost become myth now, but for Tones, keeping that natural connection with her audience has always been a massive part of her charm.
Announcing her tour plans online, Tones revealed that she’ll be personally hitting up each fan who pre-orders Welcome To The Madhouse with details on where to catch her over the next month.
“I will be personally texting everyone who pre-orders 24 hours before I busk,” she said.
I’m going busking!! I will be back in the van around Australia over the next four weeks! To find out where and when preorder my album from the Tones And I store. I will be personally texting everyone who preorders 24 hours before I busk. https://t.co/3SO4PNGkXY pic.twitter.com/NW5JJptiOC
