PETALING JAYA: Malaysian singer-songwriter Zee Avi, now based in New York, will be back in Malaysia for a homecoming tour in conjunction with the release of her second album, Ghostbird.
She will be performing in Kuala Lumpur (Nov 17), Penang (Nov 19) and Kuching, Sarawak (Nov 26).
Opening for Zee will be local rock band One Buck Short's drummer, Narmi.
Ghostbird follows Zee's self-titled debut which was released on American folk singer-songwriter Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records two years ago. It achieved gold status here with 10,000 units sold, spawning the hits Bitterheart and Kantoi.
Her sophomore album Ghostbird was released on Aug 23.
Zee said she was “itching” to go back on tour and show off her live performance skills.
The new album features 11 songs, including Stay In The Clouds, Siboh Kitak Nangis (the first song in the Miri-born singer's Sarawakian dialect) and her first single Swell Window.
Zee said Swell Window was the opening track of her album as it was the song that inspired the album and consequent tour.
