Swedish pop duo Icona Pop have announced details of three UK tour dates to take place in March 2014.

The group, who release album 'This Is... Icona Pop' on November 4, will perform live in Manchester, Glasgow and London next year starting in Sound Control in Manchester on March 22. Icona Pop will then travel to Glasgow for a gig at The Arches on March 23 before a show at KOKO in Camden, London on March 25. Tickets for all three gigs go on sale this Friday (October 11)

Earlier this year, singer-songwriter Charli XCX, who co-wrote Icona Pop's Number One single 'I Love It', says she doesn't regret giving the song away. Charli XCX wrote the song with producer Patrik Berger during sessions for her own album, but the single become a hit for the Swedish duo. Speaking to NME Charli XCX said: "I don't regret giving it away. [Icona Pop are] totally owning it. I sang it with them at South By Southwest, though, and it was this real girl power moment."

Charli XCX also claimed that she wrote the melody and lyrics in 30 minutes. On the difference between XCX's original version and their own version, Icona Pop's Caroline Hjelt said: "The original was more cute, in a way. Charli's vocal was really cool and cocky, but we wanted the track to sound more Icona Pop so we took it to another producer called Style Of Eye. He made it exactly how we wanted it to sound."

Icona Pop will play:

Manchester Sound Control (March 22)
Glasgow Arches (23)
London Koko (25)
