LOS ANGELES, CA- January 26, 2015 - Grammy© Award-nominated blues-rocker Beth Hart, highly revered for her visceral vocals and dynamic range, is set to release her new studio album entitled Better Than Home on April 14, 2015. For more than two decades, Hart has been leveling audiences around the globe with her impassioned live performances and disarming songwriting. Better Than Home is her most profound body of work to date, pulling listeners into its beautiful depths in the way that only Hart can do. PRESS HERE for the album trailer and catch a sneak peek of what’s to come. Hart will embark on an extensive world tour in support of the album in 2015 that is already selling out venues across the globe. The tour will kick off at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on February 14th. The full list of tour dates is below.

Hart’s most introspective and compelling album yet, Better Than Home peels back the intimate layers of her personal pain to not only examine them but transform them into something empowering and insightful. It has been no secret over the years that Hart’s greatest wealth of inspiration has come from intense periods of struggle in her life, from the loss of her sister to AIDS, to drug use and family strife, to an eventual bipolar diagnosis that was both frightening and liberating. The ultimate conqueror, Hart bounced back at full creative strength prepared to own and share her story.

On the title song “Better Than Home” we meet a migrating soul, face to face with her maker. “Mechanical Heart” is a powerful love song to Hart’s husband of 15 years, vowing that she will find a way to give him all that he deserves despite her emotional limitations. “Tell Her You Belong To Me” is one of the most personal songs for Hart, sung from the perspective of a daughter when her father remarries. Some levity is brought to the album with the track “You Might As Well Smile,” a reminder to not take things too seriously.
