In recent interviews, James said he will release a new album halfway 2014. New touring (with the band) will have to wait until after this release. It has been announced that in 2013 James will only appear at assorted special events. One of those events will be the inauguration of Barack Obama next week (January 21st). James will perform "America the Beautiful" there.
