Noname has announced a fall tour in support of her celebrated album Sundial, her first tour in four years.

Sundial is Noname’s third full-length album and follows 2018’s Room 25 and her 2016 debut mixtape, Telefone. The record features guests including CommonJay ElectronicaBilly Woods, Eryn Allen Kane, Ayoni, $ilkmoney, Stout, and more, and was produced alongside longtime collaborator Saba, Gaetan Judd, and Yussef Dayes.

Rolling Stone praised the album when it arrived earlier this month, calling it “eloquent, furious, funny, cerebral, bristling with rage and revenge.”

“All over the album, she’s got choice words for sucker MCs (“you sound like cat piss on popcorn”), for racism, for capitalism, for imperialism, for anyone who gets in her way,” the review states.

Noname, born Fatimah Nyeema Warner, released the 11-song track list for Sundial in July. She shared a spacey graphic on Instagram, revealing tracks “Black Mirror,” “Potentially the Interlude,” and “Gospel?”

Spotify presale tickets for Noname’s Sundial tour will be available Wednesday, Aug. 23 at 10 a.m. local time, while general tickets will go on sale Friday, Aug. 25 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets can be purchased here.
