This spring, Daryl Hall will hit the road for his first solo tour in a decade — and on Monday, Hall announced additional dates for the tour, which will feature special guest Todd Rundgren.

All of this activity for Hall surrounds the April 1 release of BeforeAfter, a special retrospective collecting 30 recordings spanning each of his five solo records outside his work with John Oates, as well as six previously unreleased recordings from the Live From Daryl’s House vaults.

Hall recently previewed the collection with a rare performance of the Eurythmics classic “Here Comes The Rain Again,” finding Hall accompanied by none other than Dave Stewart:

Some more details regarding BeforeAfter, per a news release:

Compiled and sequenced by Hall, BeforeAfter features thirty tracks spanning all five of his solo albums, from the 1980’s Robert Fripp-produced Sacred Songs through 2011’s Laughing Down Crying, which was co-produced with longtime Hall compatriot T-Bone Wolk, who sadly passed before the album was released. Additionally, the collection features six never-released performances from the pathbreaking web and television series Live From Daryl’s House, which Hall launched in 2007 with the then-novel idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the internet.” Special guests on the Live From Daryl’s House tracks include Rundgren, Dave Stewart, and Monte Montgomery. Taken as a whole, BeforeAfter draws unexpected and satisfying connections between the esoteric and accessible sides of Daryl Hall’s creativity.

“I picked this collection of songs from my solo albums because I feel they encapsulate certain periods of my career.” says Hall. “It also shows the diversity of working with collaborators like Robert Fripp or Dave Stewart. And, having some tracks from LFDH on it, really makes the compilation complete.”
