Richard Hawley has announced an extensive UK tour for later this year.

The singer will tour in support of his new album 'Standing At The Sky's Edge', which was released last Monday (May 7). He will play a total of 14 shows on the tour.

The gigs begin at Holmfirth Picture House on September 16 and run until October 3, when Hawley plays his biggest UK show to date at London's O2 Academy Brixton.

Speaking to NME recently about the album, Hawley said the heavier sound of 'Standing At The Sky's Edge' was inspired by the death of his friend and fellow musician Tim McCall.

Speaking about McCall, who had played guitar for Jarvis Cocker, Hawley said: "The nature of the songs meant that it was time to turn it up. I suppose what made me focus on this was mortality, really. I recently lost my best mate Tim McCall. I've been playing guitar since I was six years old and we learned together really."

Hawley continued: "It made me think about how much time I have or haven't got left and what I haven't done, which was just play the guitar."

The singer also is due to headline the brand new No Direction Home Festival this June. The event, which is the sister festival of End Of The Road Festival, will take place from June 8–10 at Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire. Andrew Bird, The Low Anthem, Dirty Three, Gruff Rhys and Slow Club are among the other artists booked to perform at the festival.
