Following the release of his critically acclaimed debut ‘Yesterday’s Gone’, a sold out UK and European tour, Loyle Carner announced to fans he’d be playing O2 Academy Brixton on the 6th October. Today Loyle confirms a fresh run of other UK headline dates which fans can pre-order tickets for on Wednesday 5th April before they go on general sale Friday 7th April – sign up to the pre-sale here.
Loyle has also recently released a live video for next single ‘Ain’t Nothing Changed’; the footage for which was shot by Billy Bull who accompanied Loyle on his recent ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ tour. ‘Ain’t Nothing Changed’ which will impact 28th April follows single ‘The Isle Of Arran’, which featured on the A List at BBC 6Music and B List at BBC Radio 1. ‘Ain’t Nothing Changed’ is a rousing and live favourite about staying true to oneself when everything around you is changing.‘Ain’t Nothing Changed’ has been produced by long-time collaborator Rebel Kleff.
Loyle’s insight, erudition and poetic intensity have earned him the respect of all the right people: die-hard hip-hop fans, industry insiders and most importantly, his peers. ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ is planted at an intersection between the boom-bap of East Coast hip-hop, jazz-inflected portraits of South London, and soulful laid back pop. There’s a bedrock of honest and raw sentimentality running through ‘Yesterday’s Gone’.
