Susanna Hoffs gears up for new album

Susanna Hoffs -- singer/songwriter/musician and founding member of the Bangles -- will celebrate the release of her new solo album Someday with a special event at Los Angeles’ Grammy Museum on the eve of the album’s July 17 release.

The July 16 event at the museum’s Clive Davis Theater will feature an interview, moderated by Grammy Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli, after which Hoffs will take audience questions and perform a selection of songs accompanied by a band led by Someday producer Mitchell Froom. She’ll also sign copies of the album. For those who are unable to attend the Grammy Museum performance, Stage It is offering virtual front row tickets. More details can be found here:

is an intensely personal song cycle that doubles as a musical love letter to the music of the 1960s, which “has always been my reference point for everything,” says Hoffs. The self-released work will be released via her own label Baroque Folk, distributed by Welk Music Group.

Tracks include “Raining,” the summery groove of “This Is the Place,” evocative “November Sun” and lilting “Picture Me,” with its Bacharach-style sophistication, lush retro arrangements and modern state-of-the-art production. 

For fans looking to preview the album, a Hoffs page has debuted on It features alternate versions of three songs ("Raining," "One Day," "Always Enough") along with two new tracks ("Petite Chanson" and "Summer Daze"), which Hoffs recorded with her Someday collaborator, Nashville musician Andrew Brassell.
