Davies reports that he and his son began work on Open Road in June 2015 and finished the project this past October.

“[W]orking together on this has been one of the most exciting music projects I’ve ever worked on, and I’m expecting great things for it,” Dave says in a statement. “It’s a rock album which is melodic, sensitive and uplifting.”

Davies also has been lining up U.S. tour dates and he recently added a handful of shows to his itinerary, including an April 5 performance in Milwaukee and an April 11-12 stand at the City Winery in New York. A total of seven concerts have been confirmed, with more to be announced soon.

As previously reported, the 69-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also is preparing two other releases that may see the light of day this year — a long-in-the-works documentary called Strangers and a solo album.

Here are all of Davies’ confirmed tour dates:
