Image Courtesy The Chamber GroupJill Scott has made two big announcements: she’s released “Fools Gold,” the lead single from her upcoming album, and revealed the tour dates to support it.
On the soulful song, she sings about falling for an untrustworthy man. “I was living a dream believing things that just ain’t true/Oh, I can’t believe I ever believed in you/You had me chasin’ fools gold,” she sings on the track, posted on YouTube.
According to Billboard, we will see Jill perform the song when she kicks off a 25-date headlining tour on July 13 in Pittsburgh. The singer will travel to major cities before wrapping up August 28 in Phoenix. Tickets go on sale on May 15.
“Fans have patiently waited four years for new music. When they hear Jill perform live this summer … it’ll be worth the wait,” said Scott’s longtime business partner Shawn Gee.
Jill’s first album since 2011’s The Light of the Sun is due this year.
