Michael Kiwanuka Announces US Tour Dates‏

UK singer Michael Kiwanuka announces his first US tour dates of 2016 starting April 3 in Brooklyn at Rough Trade. The brief four dates will feature music from an untitled upcoming album.

Kiwanuka’s debut album, 2012s Home Again, was released to widespread critical acclaim from journalists and fellow musicians alike, all paying testament to Michaels incredibly smooth and soulful voice that recalls a number of the great singers.

Despite a grueling tour schedule that followed the ongoing success of the record, Michael found time for two notable studio collaborations. In 2012, he hit the studio with Black KeysDan Auerbach to record a new b-side, Lasan”for his “Getting Ready” single. In 2013 he was invited by Jack White to record at his Nashville studios where the pair laid down two tracks: a new song, “Youve Got Nothing To Lose,” and a cover of Town Van Zandts “Waitin’ Round To Die.” The tracks were released in Spring 2014 on 7vinyl as part of Whites Third Man RecordsBlue Series.

In late 2014 and throughout 2015 Michael returned to the studio to commence work on a second album.

With further details of those sessions to be announced imminently, its going to be an album that reintroduces Michael Kiwanuka not only as a great young voice, but as an innovative, unclassifiable songwriter too.

Fresh from a European tour with Alabama Shakes, Michael will play two intimate headline shows in Bristol and London.
