Joe Jackson will celebrate four decades as a recording artist with a new album and a tour next year.
Fool is due out January 18th. It's his first album since 2015's Fast Forward. There's a video for the lead single, "Fabulously Absolute," on YouTube now.
Jackson starts a North American tour on February 5th in Knoxville, Tennessee and wraps up on March 9th in Phoenix. He says, "Looking for some way to organize a show out of 40 years' worth of material, I decided to draw on five albums, each representing a decade: Look Sharp (1979), Night and Day (1982), Laughter and Lust (1991), Rain (2008) and Fool (2019). We'll also throw in a couple of songs from other albums and some new covers. I can't wait. Let's party.”
