Leon Thomas has announced his first ever headlining tour, set to kick off November 27 in Atlanta at Purgatory. He’ll play Baby’s All Right in his hometown of Brooklyn on November 29. After his December 1 show at Beat Kitchen in Chicago, the tour will wrap up on December 5 at Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles.
Thomas is touring in support of his debut album Electric Dusk, which was recently released via EZMNY Records/Motown Records. Acclaimed for his work on albums by Drake and Rick Ross and as co-producer of SZA’s No.1 hit “Snooze” alongside Babyface, he was the first artist Ty Dolla $ign signed to EZMNY Records.
Named after Los Angeles’ longest-running drive-in theatre, Electric Dusk serves as the acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer’s love letter to cinema. Exploring love, heartbreak, and growth while transporting listeners into an alternative reality, the album is sonically diverse. It features a soul-strumming breakup ballad in “Breaking Point” and the gospel-tinged “Crash & Burn.” Other highlights include “Love Jones” feat. Ty Dolla $ign, a vibey slow jam expressing Thomas’ love for both the city of L.A. and his lady, and the guitar-forward grooviness of the “Blue Hundreds.”
Earlier this month, Thomas recruited Blxst for a remix of his latest single “Crash & Burn.” Reflecting on a series of superficial relationships, Thomas contemplates changing it up and moving from Cali to Mississippi.
Blxst adds a hard-hitting verse, spinning his own cautionary tale of L.A. romance. Check out the visualizer for the track below.
Thomas’ original version of the emotional, gospel-tinged “Crash & Burn” appears on his debut album, Electric Dusk. For the last ten years, Leon has been writing and producing for artists such as Ella Mai, SZA, Post Malone, and more in addition to being an accomplished actor. As he heads into the next chapter of his life, Leon fully develops his artistry as he establishes himself as a solo artist.
