Finley Quaye, who last week took home the Best British Male Solo Award from this year’s Brit Awards, capitalises on his triumph with a new single and a string of Scottish and English live dates next month.

The tour backs up the release on February 23 of new Epic single ‘Your Love Gets Sweeter’, the fourth cut off last year’s ‘Maverick A Strike’ album which has sold 280,000 copies in the UK to date. The single is available with different B-sides including album and ‘Abbey Road’ versions of the title track plus new recordings ‘Can’t Be Left Alone’, ‘Everybody Knows’, ‘Le Saint Des Delinquents’ and ‘Maverick A Dub’.

The full list of dates is: Aberdeen Music Hall (March 17), Glasgow Barrowlands (18), London Shepherd’s Bush Empire (21, 22, 23), Manchester The Academy (26), Nottingham Rock City (29) and Cambridge Corn Exchange (March 30). Tickets are available from the venues and usual agencies.
