Aimee Mann Tour Part 2

(PR) After a stunning performance at Bonnaroo last weekend, Aimee Mann is taking a short 2-week break before she hits the road again on July 9th, for the second portion of her Summer US tour.

Aimee Mann's seventh solo release to date, @#%&! Smilers, is a return to form after the artistic detours of 2005's concept album The Forgotten Arm and 2006's Christmas CD One More Drifter in the Snow.

Featuring thirteen new original songs, producer Paul Bryan describes the record as "deceptively powerful...very rich and grand sounding". The songs range from the stripped-down-to-basics of "Columbus Avenue", to the almost Cars-esque synth-pop of "Freeway", along side the classic Jimmy Webb/Glen Campbell-era "Phoenix", and the hushed creepiness of "Little Tornado."

The final song "Ballantines" is a duet with Sean Hayes complete with barroom piano and trombone section. All of the songs were penned by Mann, with the exception of "True Believer", co-written with fellow singer-songwriter Grant Lee Phillips.
