Lisa Marie Presley will launch her first tour in more than five years on June 14 at Gramercy Theatre in New York City, NY. The headline outing will include performances at Chicago's Bottom Lounge (6/20) and The Roxy in West Hollywood, CA (6/26).
Presley celebrated the album's release with a CD signing at Sun Studios in her hometown of Memphis, TN, a special evening at the GRAMMY® Museum in Los Angeles and numerous television appearances.
"Storm and Grace is the album she was born to make," said Rolling Stone. "Lisa Marie Presley gets back to bluesy-country basics in 'Storm & Grace' and breaks free from outside expectations," observed the Los Angeles Times. USA Today praised its mix of "rootsy riffs and confessional lyrics" and NPR Music declared: "In her new album, Storm and Grace, she has found her voice."
Spinner.com observed: "Presley has made the strongest album of her career...It's a moody masterpiece, exploring the demons and angels of her life" while Memphis' Commercial Appeal called Storm and Grace "a homecoming: a sumptuous album of country-soul, blues, and roots oriented songs that confirm her Southern lineage."Entertainment Weekly praised the "smoky, spooky" single "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet." The accompanying video, directed by Dean Karr, is equally atmospheric and can be seen here.
Produced by 12-time GRAMMY® winner T Bone Burnett, Storm and Grace is Presley's Universal Republic/XIX Recordings debut and follows 2003's Gold-certified To Whom It May Concern and 2005's Now What, which both debuted in the Top 10 on The Billboard's 200.
