Michael Franti is celebrating the release of his new album, "The Sound of Sunshine," with a Yahoo! maximum performance. Franti and Spearhead's, "The Sound of Sunshine," debuted at #17 making it the highest chart debut of his career.
"After making albums for 23 years, I'm thrilled to have my first top 20 album. I haven't seen the whole chart, but I might be the only artist in the top 20 this week whose first record released was actually a vinyl record! I'm grateful to all the fans who've shared our music with their friends all these years and to the nice folks at radio and venues around the country who have given us the opportunity to shine," said Franti.
Franti and Spearhead are on tour in support of the album and will be making stops in many cities throughout the U.S. and Canada including NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto. Eight cities on the tour will be a part of a "Barefoot Concert Series."
