With his eighth studio album Watch The Sun releasing this week, the same day he is going to play at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, PJ Morton is ready for the summer. The singer announced plans for an extensive summer tour which bears the album title, visiting cities across North America.

After visiting Sydney, Melbourne, and Jakarta in May, Watch The Sun tour arrives back in the US and kicks off the North American leg, starting from Houston’s House of Blues Houston on June 17. Chicago, Nashville, Detroit, New York, Memphis, Atlanta, Portland and many more will welcome PJ Morton throughout June, July, August and September. The tour wraps in Albuquerque, NM on October 1st. See the tour dates and ticket links below.

“I think these last couple years taught us to identify what is truly important. It was important for me to tell an honest story on this album. The album is an unapologetically soulful painting about the true challenges in life and love,” says Morton in a statement. He reflects that he’s being more honest, more authentic, more open than he’s been in the past, believing it to manifest with lyrics that pushed himself – not just going with the thing that felt good, but making sure that he challenged himself to go deeper.

Watch The Sun album has star contributions including Stevie Wonder, Alex Isley, Jill Scott, El DeBarge, Nas, and JoJo, and marks a more self-observer creative process of Morton. It was recorded at Studio in the Country in Louisiana, where Stevie Wonder worked on his 1979 album Journey Through The Secret Life of Plants.

After his accomplishments of three consecutive Grammys in 2019, 2020, and 2021 for Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best R&B Song, and Best Gospel Album, respectively, PJ Morton earned a Grammy Award this year, too, for Album Of The Year due to his contributions to Jon Batiste’s album We Are.
