05:01 PM Tuesday 1/19/16 | |

Along with favorites like “Fire and Rain” and “Handy Man,” Taylor will most likely perform a song or two from his latest album, Before This World. Released last June, the LP is his 17th studio album overall and his first release of new material in 13 years.

Rolling Stone says Before This World is “reminiscent of Taylor's most enduring work from the 1970s.”

The magazine’s review adds, “The simplicity of the music matches Taylor's nostalgic mood. With its renewed focus on his voice and guitar – both miraculously unscarred by time and excess – Before This World is the most direct studio record he has made in many years.”

The new run of April dates go along with previously announced gigs at Carnegie Hall, Wrigley Field and Fenway Park. Taylor also has two nights lined up at Koussevitzky Music Shed in Lenox, Mass. More shows are expected to be announced soon.

Here’s how Taylor’s schedule stands today, with the new dates bolded:

April 13 – Lubbock, Texas, United Supermarkets Arena           
April 18 – Baton Rouge, La., River Center Arena           
April 19 – Pensacola, Fla., Pensacola Bay Center
April 24 – Lexington, Ky., Rupp Arena

May 5 – New York, N.Y., Carnegie Hall      
June 30 – Chicago, Ill., Wrigley Field           
July 3 – Lenox, Mass., Koussevitzky Music Shed    
July 4 – Lenox, Mass., Koussevitzky Music Shed   
Aug. 3 – Boston, Mass., Fenway Park
