Javier Colon, first-ever winner of The Voice, has announced a tour in support of his new album, “Gravity.”

And that tour includes a Tuesday, April 26, show at World Cafe Live in Philly. Tickets are $15 plus fees, on sale now and you can learn more by heading here.

The tour kicks off in Atlanta on April 23 and includes 15 dates across the country.

In an interview following Thursday’s appearance on The Voice, Javier said he’s adding new dates almost daily and said fans can keep track of those through his Facebook page.

As for that new album, it’s called “Gravity,” hit iTunes Friday and comes to us via Javier’s new label, Concord Music Group.

“I feel like this album really represents who I am as an artist better than anything I’ve ever done,” Javier says in that same interview.

Twenty-four hours after its release, “Gravity” had cracked the Top 10 on the iTunes pop albums chart. It was sitting at number 71 on the overall albums chart.

The superb title track and a ballad called “The Hard Way” are the album’s highlights. Suffice to say Javier never sounded better.

Other tracks you’ll definitely want to check out include “Clear the Air,” “Giant” and “Working Blind.”

Javier also released the video for “Gravity” earlier this year. He plays the guy who cheats on the love of his life.

He calls that his on-camera acting debut. And in another red carpet interview, he says he wouldn’t mind branching out into acting one day; he was a music theater major during his first year in college.

“Gravity” is the first album for Javier since “Come Through for You,” his 2012 post-Voice debut that includes a duet called “Stand Up” with Voice coach Adam Levine.

Here’s the music video for “Gravity.”
