John Legend has a new album coming out and fans will get to hear it live this fall before it’s even released.

The singer announced he’ll be making his way across North America, kicking things off in Clearwater, FL on October 16. Legend will stop in twenty cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago and New York, where he’ll play the Barclays Center, home of Jay-Z’s Brooklyn Nets.

“I’m thrilled to be back on the road,” Legend said in a statement. “I look forward to seeing my fans across the country and sharing a beautiful night with them.”

While Legend will definitely play the hits like “Ordinary People” from his 2004 debut, Get Lifted, and his latest single, “Tonight (Best You’ve Ever Had),” which was featured in the movie, Think Like A Man, this tour will also feature news songs from his upcoming album, Love in the Future.

His fourth album, which has no official release date, was recorded in New York City with a little help from Kanye West. Along with the tour, Legend plans to preview new songs on his site. Fans can hear a snippet of Legend’s new mid-tempo love song, “Caught Up,” which he wrote with Kanye here.

Tickets go on sale Friday, August 17. The singer teamed up with Tickets-for-Charity, which will donate one dollar from every ticket sold through the organization’s website to Legend’s charity, the Show Me Campaign, which looks to fight poverty through education.
