Clairo’s critically acclaimed sophomore album Sling, released on July 16th via FADER Label/Republic Records, has debuted at No.1 on Billboard Alternative Albums Chart, No.2 on Top Rock Albums Chart, and in the Top 20 on Top 200 Chart.
This is the highest album charting debut for the 22-year-old American artist, songwriter, and producer. Co-produced with Grammy Award winning producer Jack Antonoff, Sling was recorded at Allaire Studios in Upstate New York and features 12-tracks including “Blouse,” which the 22-year-old performed live on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last month.
In celebration of the widely celebrated record, Clairo recently announced her 2022 headlining North American tour dates, which are quickly selling out. Tickets are on sale now at Clairo.com.
Produced by Live Nation, the 28-date tour will kick off on February 16 in Charlotte, NC at The Fillmore Charlotte with stops in Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles and more before wrapping April 16 in Atlanta, GA at Tabernacle.
Joining her on the road is British singer-songwriter and poet, Arlo Parks, supporting Clairo for the majority of the tour, with Brooklyn indie-rockers Widowspeak joining for the three remaining tour dates.
Clairo has partnered with SafeTour and Calling All Crows to provide a safe and harassment-free concert experience. Clairo is integrating a dedicated representative from Calling All Crows into her touring team who will respond to requests for support through a text helpline and proactive canvassing of each concert, and provide messaging and educational support so that attendees can take part in making these shows and their own communities safer. Together, SafeTour and Calling All Crows will provide sexual harassment prevention and response training to the full band, crew, and interested venue staff to create safe and inclusive environment on the road.
Clairo’s growing catalog includes the platinum-certified “Pretty Girl” and gold-certified “4Ever” and “Flaming Hot Cheetos,” in addition to “Are You Bored Yet?”—her platinum collaboration with Wallows. To date, she has amassed over three billion streams and counting.
