Laura Marling announces UK and Ireland headline tour

Tour will take place in April and May in support of new album 'Short Movie'

Laura Marling has announced details of a new UK and Ireland headline tour.

The tour will take place this April and May, in support of Marling’s forthcoming album ‘Short Movie’. It will include four shows at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, as well as dates in Manchester, Glasgow and Bristol.

Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10am on February 20.

Laura Marling’s new album will be released March 23. The singer-songwriter, who’s been living in LA for two years, wrote the record in America at the beginning of 2014. She previously revealed that the album was based on the fear the country induced in her, including the track ‘Small Poke’, which was written after her experience of Hurricane Sandy in New York and “the horror of being in an enormous metropolis with no power”.

Marling also disclosed that the record is her first to be completed without a producer. The three-way effort between herself, her drummer Matt – who runs Urchin Studios in Hackney – and Dan Cox, also from Urchin, also features Nick Pinki on bass, Tom Fiddle, who played in Noah And The Whale, on strings, and Ruth de Tuberville on Cello.

Laura Marling will play:

London Queen Elizabeth Hall (April 20-21)
Cambridge Corn Exchange (22)
Manchester Albert Hall (24)
Glasgow O2 Academy (25)
Birmingham Institute (27)
London Queen Elizabeth Hall (29-30)
