Following the release of her debut book, THE MAGIC BORDER, Arlo Parks is announcing her upcoming North American tour for 2024. The tour, consisting of 18 stops, will commence in late February in San Diego and will see Arlo play her largest headlining venues to date in major cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Atlanta, and New York. Artist pre-sale tickets will be available for purchase on September 26th at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET, while general ticket sales will begin on September 29th at 10 AM local time. Tickets can be purchased HERE.

Arlo’s debut book, THE MAGIC BORDER: Poetry And Fragments From My Soft Machine published by Harper Collins Publishing, consists of the lyrics from her recent sophomore album, My Soft Machine, as well as new exclusive images by Daniyel Lowden and 20 new poems. Parks’ writing has garnered high praise from fellow musician Florence Welch, who described her writing as, “poetry you can taste,” with Katie Gavin of MUNA adding, “Arlo Parks pulls beauty around her as a war tactic, and she shares the spoils with us. I am grateful and invigorated.” You can order THE MAGIC BORDER HERE.

Alongside the announcement of the tour Arlo is also unveiling her latest offering: a captivating music video for album single “Purple Phase.” Shot during her tour in Japan earlier this year, the video immerses viewers in the neon-lit nightscapes of Tokyo, where Arlo navigates the city alone.

Arlo’s new album album, My Soft Machine, released earlier this year serves as a testament to Parks’ artistic evolution, highlighting her unique storytelling prowess and introspective lyricism. The album, recorded across London and Los Angeles, boasts an impressive array of producers, including Paul Epworth, Ariel Rechtshaid, Romil Hemnani (of Brockhampton), Buddy Ross (known for collaborations with Frank Ocean), Carter Lang (known for work with SZA), and self-production by Arlo herself. Leading up to its release, Arlo graced the covers of Paste Magazine, GQ Hype, The Guardian Film & Music, DORK, MusicWeek, DIY, and Gay Times. This follows her highly acclaimed debut album, Collapsed in Sunbeams, which garnered two Grammy nominations, a BRIT Award, the Honda Mercury Prize, and the BBC Introducing Artist Of The Year Award, as well as chart success and recognition for her advocacy work with UNICEF and CALM, the UK mental health charity.
