GRAMMY-winning singer and “vocalist of unerring instinct” (New York Times) — has announced an extensive spring 2022 tour in support of her eagerly anticipated new album Age of Apathy, which is set for January 21, 2022 release on Yep Roc Records.

Following a fan presale on Wednesday, November 3rd at 10:00 am local time, tickets to Aoife’s 2022 performances will go on general sale beginning Friday, November 5th. A portion of all presale tickets will support the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, a grassroots organization dedicated to ending disenfranchisement and discrimination against people with convictions. Learn more about the organization’s mission here, and find all dates and additional information about Aoife’s tour HERE.

Last week, Aoife released “Prodigal Daughter,” the second advance track from Age of Apathy, which the New York Times called “a musical hint at multi-generational bonds,” adding that “as drama and tension rise, her voice grows quiter and clearer.” Today, The Newport Folk Festival has shared Aoife’s pin-drop stunning performance of the song with guest vocalist Allison Russell, filmed backstage at the Fest earlier this year.

Produced by fellow GRAMMY-winner Joe Henry (Bonnie Raitt, Rhiannon Giddens), Age Of Apathy finds O’Donovan in rare form. Atop richly textured arrangements — ornate but never fussy — O’Donovan reflects on the emotional disconnect wrought by the internet age and strives to carve out a more joyful personal experience. Recorded through a unique residency with Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL, Aoife worked both on-site at their studio with GRAMMY-nominated engineer Darren Schneider (Deep Purple, Koryn Hawthorne, Trivium) while collaborating entirely remotely with Henry. O’Donovan, Henry and Schneider discussed and previewed the album in September at an Americanafest panel hosted by WXPN’s Bruce Warren.
