Corinne Bailey Rae's self-titled debut album will finally be released to the American masses on June 20th, 2006.

When singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae's self-titled debut album entered the U.K. album chart at #1 in March, she made chart history as the first female British artist to do so with a debut album of original songs. Corinne Bailey Rae is currently certified double Platinum there, and Gold in numerous other countries, with worldwide sales already well over one million. Now Bailey Rae is poised to take North America, launching the album with performances on "Good Morning America" (June 19th) and "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" (June 27th) as well as a series of sold-out shows in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. While in the States, Bailey Rae will also tape appearances on PBS' "The Tavis Smiley Show" and A&E's "Breakfast with the Arts." Dates are being finalized for a full North American summer tour.

Early reaction has been astounding with Starbucks signing on to carry Corinne Bailey Rae at its Company-operated locations in the U.S. and Canada, a cross-platform "You Oughta Know" campaign at VH1, VH1 Soul and VH1.com and a BET award nomination. And this week iTunes is featuring an acoustic version of lead single "Put Your Records On" as Single of the Week. "Rae's music sticks in your mind like a pleasant scent you wish would linger," said Blender while Entertainment Weekly said "Corinne Bailey Rae is so 5 minutes from now….Think a warm, sultry blend of Norah Jones Cool and Macy Gray Soul, with songwriting that shows flashes of Fiona Apple."

Confirmed US shows are as follows, additional North American dates to be added soon:

June

21 New York, NY Bowery Ballroom

23 Chicago, IL Schubas

26 Los Angeles, CA Troubadour

27 San Francisco, CA Café Du Nord
