Kate Tempest has announced details of a UK headline tour.
The rapper and spoken word artist, who released her debut album ‘Everybody Down‘ in 2014, will head out on tour in November and December.
The tour begins on November 30 when Tempest appears at Belfast Empire. The run of dates will then see her visit Glasgow, Sheffield, Birmingham, Norwich, Manchester, Bristol and Brighton, then conclude at London’s Roundhouse on December 11.
Tempest received a Mercury Prize nomination for ‘Everybody Down’ and the artwork from the record was featured in a National Portrait Gallery exhibition called Picture The Poet last year.
Her debut novel, The Bricks That Built Houses, was published by Bloomsbury earlier this year and told a multi-generational story of drugs, desire and belonging in London. It was named a Sunday Times Bestseller. She has also had two collections of poetry published and was selected as a Next Generation Poet by the Poetry Society.
The musician recently promised new music is “coming soon” in a post on her Twitter account, and her second album ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’ will be released on October 7 via Fiction Records.
