Fans of Diana Krall have two huge reasons to celebrate: a new album and a world tour. The album, Turn Up The Quiet, will be released by Verve on May 5. The label says this album celebrates Krall’s return to jazz and the Great American Songbook, and it reunites the singer-pianist with famed, Grammy-winning producer Tommy LiPuma.

Krall will launch an extensive world tour on June 2 at the State Theatre in Minneapolis. Other stops on the U.S. portion of the tour include Ann Arbor, Michigan (June 6), Newark, New Jersey (June 16), Boston (June 17), New York City (June 21), Highland Park, Illinois (June 28), Park City, Utah (July 21), San Francisco (Aug. 5), San Diego (Aug. 8) and Phoenix (Aug. 9).

Krall will then take a break before heading to Europe. The European leg begins on Sept. 10 at the Musikteater in Vejle, Denmark, followed by shows in Amsterdam (Sept. 11), Berlin (Sept. 15), Vienna (Sept. 18–19), Brussels (Sept. 25), London (Sept. 27–28), Oslo (Oct. 1), Paris (Oct. 7–8) and Barcelona (Oct. 17).

The singer-pianist’s 2015 album, Wallflower (Verve), featured renditions of pop songs by Elton John (“Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”), The Eagles (“Desperado,” “I Can’t Tell You Why”) and The Mamas & The Papas (“California Dreamin’”).

Krall topped the Female Vocalist category of the 2016 DownBeat Readers Poll, and last fall Verve released her 2005 holiday collection, Christmas Songs, on vinyl for the first time.

Krall played piano on and wrote rhythm arrangements for Paul McCartney’s 2012 album, Kisses On The Bottom (Hear Music), which was produced by LiPuma.
