Devendra Banhart has confirmed a headline show at Hackney Empire on April 12th; the final date of a European tour in support of his latest album, Ape In Pink Marble.
Nonesuch Records released Banhart’s latest album, Ape in Pink Marble, in September to widespread critical acclaim. The album, his ninth, was written, produced, arranged, and recorded in Los Angeles by the singer/songwriter/guitarist with his longtime collaborators Noah Georgeson and Josiah Steinbrick, both of whom also worked on Banhart’s previous album, Mala (2013).
Banhart first attracted international notice in 2002 with his debut album. Mala, his Nonesuch debut, was described by Q as a ‘career-best’ and by the Wall Street Journal as his ‘most concise, hushed and winsome effort to date’.
Banhart has collaborated with fellow musicians including Anohni (formerly known as Antony) and the Johnsons, Beck, Vashti Bunyan, Os Mutantes, and Vetiver. He also has performed with both Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, and was part of a David Byrne–curated concert at Carnegie Hall.
