Lizzy McAlpine Spills the Tea on Her ‘Older’ Album and Heartfelt Tour Plans!

In anticipation of her soon-to-be-released album of the same name, Lizzy McAlpine has announced “The Older Tour.”

There will be a public on-sale via Ticketmaster on Friday, February 23rd, after a Live Nation ticket pre-sale on Thursday, February 22nd. RCA Records will release McAlpine’s third album, Older, on April 5. 

Lizzy McAlpine has announced a headlining world tour that will take her throughout North America, Europe, and the United Kingdom this year.

This comes just weeks after announcing her third studio album (and major-label debut), Older, which is led by the incredible title track. It includes a single stop in Toronto, Canada.

The singer-songwriter’s tour begins on April 21 in San Diego and will stop off in the US on a few occasions in May and June. 

Just three shows are left in her August schedule, the last of which is a gig at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage on August 7 before she moves on to Europe and the UK.

The Ally Coalition (TAC) will receive a portion of the proceeds from Lizzy McAlpine’s “The Older Tour” in support of their work with LGBTQ youth. 

The album’s lead single, “Older,” which was described as a “gorgeous” and “gloomy” piano ballad, was most recently shared by Lizzy. 

The album includes the platinum-certified single “ceilings,” which debuted at No. 75 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, along with hit singles “All My Ghosts” and “Erase Me (feat. Jacob Collier)”.

The singer-songwriter debuted a pastoral, home movie-esque lyric video for her song “Older,” in which she playfully strolls among trees and verdant fields while wearing a white dress, splashes around in a lake, and strolls.

The images in the video are in stark contrast to the melancholic vibe of the vocal, piano, and electric guitar ballad. The song opens with the well-worn allegory of a roller coaster to describe a tumultuous relationship that is in between.

McAlpine’s soft, controlled vocals initially have a touch of country before they branch out and become more varied in the chorus’ second run. Because of how close-knit the recording is, we can hear creaking beneath the actors’ movements. 

McAlpine claims that this recording is the result of three takes and that the song was completed quickly. Despite not compromising, she shared on social media that she was under pressure to perform well on her RCA Records debut, Older.

Older was produced by McAlpine in collaboration with Mason Stoops and featured additional production from Tony Berg, Jeremy Most, and Ryan Lerman of Scary Pockets. 

Los Angeles is where it was recorded.
