James McCartney, announced that he will begin a North American tour in late March to support his album “The Blackberry Train.” The tour, which is titled “The Marshmallow Maiden Tour,” begins on March 21 in Decatur, Georgia and ends on May 13 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The tour plans to cover 34 cities, including stops in both New York City and Los Angeles. Among the other states that he will travel to on the tour include North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Texas, Arizona and Utah. The full itinerary of the tour is listed at the bottom of this story. 
In addition, McCartney also announced Thursday he was premiering a new acoustic version of the song Fantasy, a track taken from his “The Blackberry Train” album. The album, which was engineered by Steve Albini, opens with a song that features a little help from Dhani Harrison, son of George Harrison, on Too Hard. Previously, the young McCartney has released “Me,” and “The Complete EP Collection.” The second was a collection of the two digital-only EPs he released along with five additional bonus tracks.
"I like the music to have elements of the avant-garde, psychedelic, and be just a little against the grain," McCartney said in a statement released today. "But in the end, it's about having as much emotion as possible for me, musically and lyrically. It's all about the music being cathartic, heartfelt and true."
