Fans of Spalding who purchase tickets through Ticketmaster will receive a free song download of “City of Roses" from Radio Music Society, and in celebration of Black History Month, can purchase the e-single “Black Gold" (which includes a music video) on iTunes beginning February 7.

Spalding's latest release, Radio Music Society, set for March 20, 2012, is her most diverse, ambitious and masterful recital yet.
