Declan McKenna, alternative singer/songwriter and socially conscious artist, announced his 40-date U.S. headlining tour, the most extensive tour the 18-year-old Brit has undertaken yet. McKenna will perform in cities including Austin, Nashville, Philadelphia, and Pawtucket, RI following rapturously received performances at Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and the release of his debut album What Do You Think About The Car? via Columbia Records.

Declan McKenna’s debut album What Do You Think About The Car?, a collection of socially aware, melody-heavy indie pop songs, is out now via Columbia Records. The album received near universal praise, and was recently featured on NPR Music as a First Listen with NPR Music’s Bob Boilen noting, “Declan McKenna writes about a much bigger world than you or I might expect from a singer who only recently turned 18.” The New York Times also included McKenna’s single, “Humongous” in their weekly playlist, describing Declan’s music as “a strong throwback streak, from his reedy John Lennon-Liam Gallagher vocals to his melodic, midtempo guitar-strumming Britpop productions.” Declan McKenna was also named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need to Know” for August 2017, who call his new album, What Do You Think About The Car?, “smart, moving and occasionally really funny.”

What Do You Think About The Car? is the follow up to Declan’s EP Liar released last May. The full-length album was recorded in London and LA alongside renowned producer James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco (Depeche Mode, Arctic Monkeys). The song “Listen To Your Friends” was produced by Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend; the track, “Paracetamol” was produced by Neil Comber; and “Brazil” was produced by Max Marlow.
