Christopher Owens, former frontman of Girls, has announced plans to embark on a solo North American tour of theaters and clubs that will kick off Jan. 14 in Chicago and run through a Jan. 27 gig in Washington, D.C. The trek is in support of his  debut solo album, 'Lysandre,' which drops Jan. 15.

Owens, who announced his departure from Girls in July, recently previewed the 'Lysandre' tracks 'Lysandre's Theme' and 'Here We Go.' (Listen here.) Before his stateside jaunt, the singer has four concerts lined up in Europe: a Dec. 7 gig in Lisbon, Portugal; one on Dec. 8 in Paris; and back-to-back Dec. 10 and 11 concerts in London.
