Girli will also play a socially distanced show at Bush Hall in London on July 9 as part of the venue’s 20th anniversary celebrations.

In May, Girli released an emotive new song called ‘More Than A Friend’ – you can listen to it here.

It arrived after she released a new EP, ‘Ex Talk’, earlier in the year, the follow-up to her debut album ‘Odd One Out’ which arrived in 2019.

Speaking about the reaction to the album from her fans at the time, Girli told NME: “It was great. My fans all loved it, and I think I made a lot of new fans, which was cool. And it was crazy – we played a show the day the album came out, and people in the crowd already knew the lyrics. The whole crowd knew lyrics to songs that had come out that day!”

Speaking about her personal lyrics and how they relate to fans, she added: “I’ll get DMs and YouTube comments where people really open up and get personal and it’s kind of amazing.

“It actually reminds me constantly of the responsibility that I have with the kind of people who listen to my music who are very young and are probably going through a lot, so they’re listening to this music and sometimes I’ll get messages saying my song has changed someone’s life, and that’s really overwhelming, but in an amazing way.”
