Rae Morris

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING her triumphant live return at London’s ICA earlier this month, Rae Morris has announced her first full UK tour in almost 18 months.

On sale this Friday (August 4), the tour kicks off in Norwich on September 24, and takes in Nottingham, Salisbury and Leeds, finishing at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on September 28, 2017.

Last month, Rae unveiled Reborn, the first taster from her forthcoming second album. Shot just outside of Beirut with Noel Paul (Bat For Lashes, Röyksopp), Rae had this to say about the accompanying video: “Reborn was the first song that made me feel something when I started writing for this second record, so it feels fitting for it to be the first thing that people will hear.

“It’s about new beginnings, finding clarity and head space. Noel and I went to the side of a huge lake in Lebanon to shoot the video. The landscape was vast and barren in places but consistently beautiful.”

The UK tour dates are (all September 2017)

24 – Arts Centre, Norwich
25 – Contemporary, The Space, Nottingham
26 – Arts Centre, Salisbury
27 – Belgrave Music Hall, Leeds
28 – Islington Assembly Hall, London
