Synthpop master Howard Jones is set to release a brand-new studio album this summer — Dialogue, the third in a trilogy that includes 2015’s Engage and 2019’s Transform — and is planning to hit the road on a 27-date U.S. tour with Midge Ure.

The new album does not yet have a release date, but Jones is promising to play some of the new material, as well as old hits, on his tour with the former Ultravox frontman.

The tour opens June 17 in Tulalip, Washington, and runs through a July 27 date in Dallas. Head over to Jones’s official site for full ticket information. More dates will be added, Jones’s team says.

Of the trek, Jones says:

“I am beyond excited to be touring the U.S. this summer with my great friend Midge Ure. As we take safe steps to put the pandemic behind us, the tour will be a celebration of being together, enjoying the power of live music again. Expect plenty of hit songs as well as cuts from my new album Dialogue.

Ure, in his own statement, says:

“What a joy to be touring North America with my friend Howard Jones again. With the emphasis on technology, quality and performance I am looking forward to dusting off the synthesizers, cranking up the guitar and playing with the brilliant musicians who will be sharing the stage with me. We first collaborated live together back in 1989 on Howard’s ‘Cross the Line Tour,’ which holds nothing but great memories for me, so I am hoping to not only rekindle those but add new ones to the memory bank.”
