Clairo Plots 2022 North American Tour in Support of ‘Sling’ Album

29th July 2021 | Category: Concerts

Clairo has announced a North American tour in support of her new album Sling.

The spring trek kicks off in Charlotte, North Carolina, on February 16th, with stops at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall and Chicago’s Riviera Theatre. It will wrap in Claire Cottrill’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia on April 16th.

Arlo Parks will support Cottrill for a majority of the dates, with Widowspeak opening the final three dates. 

Cottrill partnered with SafeTour and Calling All Crows for the shows to be safe and harassment-free. 

“Now that shows are starting to come back into our everyday lives, it’s important to

prioritize everyone’s experience to the fullest,” Cottrill said in a statement. “Everyone deserves a resource and everyone deserves to enjoy the show in peace. I want the audience to know that there is someone who will listen and believe them at every show.”

The Jack Antonoff-produced Sling marks Cottrill’s second album, which was mostly recorded at Allaire Studios in upstate New York.

In April 2020, it was reported that Clairo had begun work on her follow-up to Immunity when she shared a screenshot of a playlist titled ‘Album 2 (demos so far)’. In the writing process, Clairo admitted that “Joanie, my dog, opened up my world in ways I didn’t think were capable. By caring for her, it forced me to face my own thoughts about parenthood and what it would mean to me.” 

Having started writing in July 2020, Clairo revealed that “Reaper” was the first song she wrote for the record, and had then recorded approximately 35 of its demos thereafter.

Prior to the announcement of Sling, Clairo provided background vocals on Lorde‘s song “Solar Power” alongside Phoebe Bridgers. On June 11, 2021, Clairo released the lead single of the album, “Blouse”, which features background vocals from Lorde.
