Leela James Announces New Album ‘Did It For Love’ and Spring 2017 Tour

This spring, R&B/Soul singer-songwriter Leela James will be headlining a nationwide 25-city tour, with special guest Daley. James will be supporting the release of her hotly-anticipated album, Did It For Love (March 31, 2017/BMG).

In creating her sixth studio album, Leela James drew upon a variety of inspirations ranging from her two beautiful children to the death of a close friend. The album showcases her trademark blend of powerful vocal range and sultry soul that fans have long been drawn to; as it stands, her current single Don’t Want You Back is already top 5 on the Urban AC radio charts and has been streamed in over 60 countries via Spotify.

For James, dedicating her energy entirely to writing and recording Did It For Love left her aching to get back on the road. “I am so excited to be going back on tour. There’s nothing like interacting with people and seeing how the crowd reacts to new music. This album has been a wonderful experience, just an incredible project to work on. I feel so positive and I want to try to bring that onstage, and to everyone I meet.”
