Following his short run of intimate dates last December, Luke Sital-Singh has announced a more extensive UK Tour in support of his upcoming new album, ‘A Golden State’, which is out April 5th on Raygun Records via The Orchard. The new run of dates includes a return to Cambridge when he plays The Portland Arms on April 15th, tickets available from here.
Luke, who recently relocated from Bristol to LA, says “I’ve been living in Los Angeles for two weeks so far and I’m already feeling worryingly upbeat. So I’m very excited to be coming home for this tour and launching this new album the right way. It could be my last visit for a while so I plan to make it a memorable one.”
Fittingly, Luke’s new single is called ‘Los Angeles’ and it’s a song as warm and hazy as an LA morning. Writing it helped in his decision to move to the city with his wife, illustrator Hannah Cousins. “Hannah’s wanted to move to LA for years but I’m not much of an adventurer, I’m a worrier and a pessimist,” he says. “But I do need something new. And writing the song crystallized my enthusiasm for moving there. It’s probably the most honest and open song on the album.”
Luke Sital-Singh released his debut single ‘Fail For You’ in 2012, introducing the world his deft ability to craft songs with a mesmerizing, piercing emotional quality. The song went on to be featured in numerous TV shows including ‘Grey’s Anatomy’. At the end of 2013, Sital-Singh was featured in the BBC’s Sound of 2014 list and released his debut record ‘The Fire Inside’ later that year. After a couple of years touring the world and opening for artist such as Villagers, The Staves, Martha Wainwright and Angus and Julia Stone, in 2017 Sital-Singh released his critically-acclaimed sophomore record ‘Time Is A Riddle’.
