Jack Penate to release new single

Singer is back on the road in June

Jack Penate has announced he is to follow up the recent release of debut ’Spit At Stars’ with a brand new single.

The solo star’s latest offering ’Torn On The Platform’ will be released on June 25.

Speaking to NME.COM on a break from the filming of his video for the single, Penate explained the thinking behind it.

He said: “It’s pretty simple. I wanted it to be quite fun and playful, so it’s based visually on the drawings that I do for all my covers, so it’s kind of like the covers are brought to life.”

Meanwhile, the singer will be back on the road in June, playing dates around the UK.

Speaking about the new tour, Penate joked: “I literally can’t remember when I wasn’t touring, I feel like I’ve been doing it my whole life. It’s been amazing though.”

The dates are as follows:

Glasgow King Tuts (June 16)

Leeds Cockpit (17)

Nottingham Rescue Rooms (18)

Liverpool Academy 2 (20)

Birmingham Barfly (26)

London Scala (27)

Manchester Academy 3 (28)

Brighton Concorde (29)
