Rising American singer-songwriter and musician Donna Missal has announced her 2019 headline tour, which kicks off Valentine’s Day (February 14th) in Chicago. The 20-date ‘This TimeTour is

Louis, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, DC, Atlanta,
Nashville, Houston, Dallas, Denver, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco,
Los Angeles and more before concluding in San Diego on March 30th.

Donna explained in an Instagram post today: “I
was homeschooled. I never had a school dance or a picture day or a
graduation. THIS TIME TOUR is your invitation to the winter and spring
formal I never had. If you had a shitty time in school and want a re-do,
or maybe you loved it and want to go back to that feeling, THIS TIME is
your time. VIP packages will be available so you can take your very own
NEW yearbook photo by 
Muriel Knudson and be a part of our CLASS OF ‘THIS TIME’ yearbook.”

Having spent much of 2018 on the road, including two special album release shows in LA and New York, an appearance on MTV’s TRL, her debut festival appearance at Austin City Limits and prominent supporting slots opening for King PrincessBishop Briggs, Sir Sly and Joywave, earning legions of new fans along the way—now Donna Missal is
taking the reins, bringing her energetic and fiercely passionate live
set to a city near you, in support of her debut album (and tour
namesake), This Time.

The tour will see Donna Missal playing songs from her debut album, This Time, out now on Harvest Records. The eleven-track album infuses Missal’s timeless, fiery vocals with scorching production by Tim Anderson (Solange,
BANKS, Halsey), harkening back to the heyday of classic soul music, all
the while creating something fresh and contemporary. Including standout
cuts like “Driving,” “Transformer,” “Girl,” “Thrills” and current focus track, “Jupiter,” an impassioned anthem with a driving bassline and massive chorus. Watch Donna deliver the goods in this live version of “Jupiter” HERE, filmed exclusively as part of Vevo’s DSCVR series

The album also includes her latest single “Keep Lying,” which has been steadily climbing the charts at Alternative radio. Following Zane Lowe’s premiere of Missal’s original demo version of “Keep Lying” on Beats 1, the song shot to the top of the Spotify Viral and HypeMachine charts.

Blending elements of soul, hip-hop and rock & roll, Missal shaped This Time’s sonic
landscape partly by laying live recordings down on tape, then sampling
those recordings to imbue her songs with a fresh yet timeless energy.
Much of that live recording took place at the iconic Different Fur
Studios in San Francisco, where she was joined in the studio by Nate Mercereau (Leon Bridges). “I really wanted this album to reference my history of playing in bands,” she  explains. “It’s
all these very pure, talented musicians playing together in a room, but
then we took that and sampled it and altered in a way that creates
something totally new.”

With its title taken from a track Missal co-wrote with her frequent collaborator Sharon Van Etten, ‘This Time’ is an uncompromisingly honest look at living entirely on your own terms. “I’ve spent most of my life being hyper-focused on time, which I think is something that a lot of women obsess over,”says Missal. “We’re
in such a rush to make things happen, when really we should take the
time to figure out what we actually want out of life. And even though
it’s so fucking hard to have that kind of patience, I think it’s so
important to believe in yourself enough to let things develop in a way
that feels right to you.”

Throughout the album, Missal crafts her lyrics with the kind of
idiosyncratic detail that instantly etches each line onto your heart,
exploring self-empowerment on tracks like “Transformer”—a fiercely charged anthem about “having the courage to take what you want from life, without apology,”and on “Thrills,”
which sees Missal musing on self-love and sexual confidence, her voice
soaring over a gently swaying groove and dreamy guitar tones. “‘Thrills’ is about owning what makes you real,” says Missal. “There
is a shift happening in our societal standards of beauty and sexuality,
and the more we embrace our flaws the closer we become to effecting
real change. I’d love for people to hear the song — and not just women,
but anyone who feels disenfranchised— and remember that being sexy and
confident comes from self-acceptance.”

Elsewhere on This Time, Missal infuses social commentary into songs like “Girl”: a stripped-back yet intricately textured track that unfolds with both gentle playfulness and piercing vulnerability. “I
wanted to address this idea that women need to be pinned against each
other in order to succeed, or need to point out the flaws in other women
just to feel good about themselves,”
says Missal. “That kind of
thinking has been around forever, and it doesn’t feel like it’s going
away—but the more we talk about it, the better it’s going to get.” 
And on “Driving,” Missal delivers
one of the album’s most mesmerizing moments, with her flowing melody,
hypnotic rhythms, and ethereal vocals merging with a quiet grandeur
that’s simultaneously escapist and inspiring. “‘Driving’ is about
being on the precipice of taking control over your life—that feeling of
seeing something you want in the distance and making the decision to go
for it,”
says Missal. “It’s about saying ‘Even if it takes a
long time, or I hit some bumps along the way, it’s all okay because I’m
the one behind the wheel.’”

To date, Donna Missal’s songs have racked up more than 20 MILLION COMBINED STREAMS globally, and now with the release of her debut album ‘This Time’, Missal is excited to provide her fans more of what they love so much about her music. “This isn’t a record about love and loss and relationships,” Missal explains. “It’s
about taking chances for yourself, figuring out who you are and really
standing behind that. I made a point of putting myself out there as a
real person navigating this life at this moment in time, because I want
to do whatever I can as an artist to help people feel more confident in
navigating their own lives. I’d love for the listener to receive the
message that you can take your time to learn and love yourself. That’s
been the most important discovery that I want to share with this album.”

Donna Missal’s is a voice that comes around once in a lifetime, so you’re definitely not going to want to miss out on this tour.
