Alice Boman Announces North American Tour

Alice Boman today releases “Where To Put The Pain”, the gently cathartic latest single from her new LP The Space Between due out October 21st via [PIAS]. The Swedish artist also announced October dates supporting Lykke Li across Europe–including a London show at the Barbican a day after her album release–and her first North American tour in over three years. The 2023 tour includes six shows in the U.S. and Canada, including Brooklyn’s Union Pool (3/26) and LA’s Moroccan Lounge (3/31).

“Where To Put The Pain” arrives alongside a video directed by Isak Berglund Mattsson-Mårn, which finds Alice swimming in freezing cold Stockholm water. Boman explains: “This song is about dealing with difficult emotions and worries and different kinds of pain. In a world where a lot of things are feeling hopeless and bad things are happening it sometimes gets a bit overwhelming. Sometimes to the point of feeling numb. How do you find a balance in that?”

Boman has been thinking about space a lot lately. The silence between sounds, the unspoken bonds between humans, the enormity of the universe and her place within it. It can all get a little overwhelming at times if she’s honest, but whenever it does there’s always music. “Writing is still a way for me to understand myself,” Boman explains. “As an overthinker, there’s this constant motion in my head, so it helps to sit down and write about it to actually understand what I feel or think. Or just to find stillness.”

You can follow these mini epiphanies on The Space Between, the Swedish singer-songwriter’s stunning new album. Ruminating on intimacy and existential angst, to listen is to hear Boman’s thoughts unfurl in real time, her quiet contemplations cocooned in sympathetic arrangements created in collaboration with her producer Patrik Berger (Robyn, Lana Del Rey).

“My partner came up with the [album’s] working title, Space, almost as a joke as he knows I don’t like thinking about the vastness of the universe, just because it makes me so aware of the little time we have on Earth,” explains Boman. “But when I looked in my notebooks later, I realized how often the word space appeared, from the space in your mind, and the space in your body, to the space between people.”
