Hawaiian musician Jack Johnson is returning to New Zealand for one show in December.

Johnson tours in support of his sixth studio album From Here To Now To You, which is due to be released later this month.

The album features his longtime recording and touring band members Adam Topol, Merlo Podlewski, and Zach Gill.

The album also marks a reunion with producer Mario Caldato, Jr. who produced Johnson's biggest selling album, In Between Dreams, and good friend and fellow musician Ben Harper who lends vocals and Weisenbborn slide guitar for a song.

Johnson and his band will kick off their world tour this September with dates across Europe, the UK and the US before heading Down Under in December. 

Johnson will be supported by Oahu-based musician friends Paula Fuga and John Cruz. Fuga's singing has been described as modern Hawaiian soul, while Cruz's "Island Style" has long been a staple of contemporary Hawaiian music.

As with all of his tours since 2008, Johnson will donate 100 per cent of his tour profits to charity. There will also be a number of Green initiatives implemented in the venues and on the road including composting, recycling and food donations. 

For further information on the environmental initiatives please go to http://jackjohnsonmusic.com.

Tickets will go on sale at 9am Tuesday September 17.
