Declan McKenna announces live-streamed ‘Zeros’ album launch concert

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (August 14)

Declan McKenna has announced details of a one-off live-streamed concert in London.

The singer-songwriter will be showcasing the entirety of his forthcoming new album ‘Zeros’ on September 4 – the day it’s released – at 9pm BST, at the Lafayette in King’s Cross.

Tickets for the show, which can be viewed for 24 hours after the concert goes out live, can be purchased via DICE here from tomorrow (August 14) at 5pm BST.


UK fans will also be given the option of purchasing the album and a ticket to the show together.

McKenna said: “I’m really excited to be able to perform again for you guys. I can’t wait to get back on the road next March but in the meantime, this will be the best performance of ours the internet has ever seen. Hold onto your hats! Buzzing for you guys to hear what we’ve been working on!!!”

‘Zeros’ was set for release on August 21, after being postponed on May 15 due to the coronavirus pandemic. But it was put back again until September 4.

It will feature all four recently released singles, including ‘Be An Astronaut’, ‘Daniel, You’re Still A Child‘, ‘Beautiful Faces’ and ‘The Key To Life On Earth’.

Speaking to NME last year, McKenna said the album is a “slightly different step” compared to his debut record, ‘What Do You Think About The Car?‘.


“[It’s] just a little bit more considered and a little bit of a step in a direction where I’m giving a bit more purpose to every part of the song as opposed to just kind of writing songs and then being like, ‘Oh okay, going to release an album now!’ Which is a bit like what the first album was for me, as I was still learning,” he said.

Meanwhile, McKenna has also added further dates to his UK 2021 tour.
