Cate Le Bon unveils new album, announces tour for 2022: how to get tickets

The eccentric songwriter will play London, Manchester, Glasgow and more in support of new album
Off-beat singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon has announced a number of UK dates for her 2022 world tour. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10am on Friday 15 October.
The tour comes as Le Bon announces her sixth studio album Pompeii, set for release on Friday 4 February through Mexican Summer records.
Le Bon says of the album, 'Pompeii was written and recorded in a quagmire of unease. Solo. In a time warp. In a house I had a life in 15 years ago. I grappled with existence, resignation and faith. I felt culpable for the mess but it smacked hard of the collective guilt imposed by religion and original sin.
'The subtitle is: You will be forever connected to everything. Which, depending on the time of day, is as comforting as it is terrifying. The sense of finality has always been here. It seems strangely hopeful. Someone is playing with the focus lens. The world is on fire but the bins must go out on a Tuesday night. Political dissonance meets beauty regimes. I put a groove behind it for something to hold on to. The grief is in the saxophones.'
The artist, whose last album Reward was nominated for the Mercury Prize, has also unveiled the lead single from the album, 'Running Away.' Listen to the single and see a detailed list of Cate Le Bon's tour dates below.
