Princess Nokia Announces ‘Final’ Tour, Talks New Project

Princess Nokia surprised all of us this morning with an announcement on Instagram and Twitter that her upcoming tour will be her last.

Although she hinted at the release of a new project to be announced in July, we’re surprised to hear that after her banner year following the success of her retro-futurist album, Metallic Butterfly, she’s already charting her exit from the project…though it sounds like some new things are in the works.

UPDATE: Turns out Nokia isn’t doing anything as drastic as quitting music, she’s just preparing to cocoon and birth her latest incarnation.

Whatever comes next, we’ll definitely be watching. Here’s the full text of her announcement and the final Princess Nokia tour dates through May and June. See her while you can.
