Sondre Lerche will hit the road this fall to promote his upcoming album Heartbeat Radio. The transplanted Norwegian, who currently resides in Brooklyn, will play his first date on September 5th in Philadelphia, and end September 30th in Vancouver. Lerche then heads across the pond to continue the European leg of the tour.

Recorded in his hometown of Bergen, Norway, Heartbeat Radio marks Lerche’s first release since the soundtrack for Dan In Real Life in 2007. Available September 8th on Rounder Records, Heartbeat is said to mix everything from simple acoustic songs to full orchestra string arrangements by High Llamas frontman Sean O’Hagan.
