It’s also very exciting to finally share my new songs in a live setting.”

Consequences, Joan’s 22nd album, “finds her at the peak of her game” (Rolling Stone). It was released digitally in the US on June 18th and is scheduled for CD/LP release on August 13 via BMG. It shot straight to the No 10 position in the UK charts in its first week of release, marking her first Top 10 album in 30 years. She was recently featured in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Forbes, and NPR Weekend Edition.
