“I’m really excited about the tour and I think it will be a step up for me,” Tempest said in an interview with NME earlier this week. “It’s been incredible to have had this time off touring and to reassess what I want from a performance and what I can give to it and try and get myself strong in body and mind so that I can really enjoy touring. Because it’s the most beautiful and incredible thing to stand up in front of people and play your music. I’m pretty sure I won’t be the same after it – that’s how it feels when I embark on a tour.”

It comes after the writer and musician also shared the first taster from their upcoming fourth studio album ‘The Line Is A Curve’ with new single ‘More Pressure’.

The track is an up-tempo, synth-infused groove featuring the writer and musician’s incisive lyricism front and centre, with a guest appearance from Kevin Abstract of LA hip-hop collective Brockhampton.
