The tour is in support of second album ‘Nurture’, which was released in April and followed on from 2014’s ‘Worlds’. According to a press release, the run of shows will see Robinson singing and playing the piano and an array of digital instruments, accompanied by a carefully crafted visual production.

Speaking to NME about the years inbetween ‘Worlds’ and ‘Nurture’, Robinson said he “felt really convinced that I wouldn’t be able to ever make music again. And that was always my greatest fear.”

He went on to add that he wanted ‘Nurture’ to be “much more vulnerable, intimate and personal” than his previous work.” He described it as being about “finding the beauty in everyday and reality as it is; that’s why the tagline of the album is ‘everything we need is already here’.”
