James Blake has announced plans for an autumn tour of the UK.

The singer and producer will play six UK dates this September in the support of his recently released new album 'Overgrown', the follow-up to his self-titled debut, which was released in 2011.

Blake will kick off the run of dates on September 18 at Glasgow O2 ABC, before playing shows in Manchester, Birmingham, Oxford and Bristol, before finishing up at London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on September 25.

Tickets go on general sale April 18. James Blake will then tour mainland Europe in October.

James Blake recently said that he doesn't care if people illegally download his new album for free.

The singer says that he accepts digital piracy as an everyday fact of life.

Asked by The Guardian about his opinion on people downloading the new album for free, he said: "Why wouldn't you? I'm starting not to care, to be honest."

He added: "Things are changing. The ship [music industry] isn't just going down. There are people trapped inside, bashing on the windows trying to get out."

James Blake played Coachella Festival in California yesterday (April 14) and will be appearing at the second weekend of the festival on April 21.

He will also be playing a number of UK festivals this summer, including Festival No 6 and Bestival.

James Blake will play:

Glasgow O2 ABC (September 18)
Manchester Ritz (20)
Birmingham Institute (21)
Oxford O2 Academy (22)
Bristol O2 Academy (24)
London O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire (25)
