She will perform at the Olympia Theatre on March 10 next year, as a part of her Dear Happy Tour.
Gabrielle Aplin has announced a 2020 UK and Ireland tour in support of her forthcoming third album Dear Happy, due for release on January 17 via AWAL and her own label Never Fade Records.
To celebrate the announcement, Aplin has released the brand-new, uplifting pop song ‘Kintsugi’, about strength and clearer perspective over past struggles, which you can listen to here.
About her impending album she said: “I’m so excited to release Dear Happy into the world. It’s been a few years in the works as I figured out what I wanted to say with my third album. The start of this album, without knowing at the time, coincided with the moment I made a definitive decision to start to unravel and rewire my brain. Dear Happy subsequently became a documentation of this journey to myself. I wanted to use writing as a way of understanding."
“Sonically I wanted to capture these moments and experiences in a positive light. I want to listen back to these songs in 5 years and hear happiness and positivity. It’s an album about saying “f**k it!” to your worries and insecurities. Or maybe it’s an album that invites your worries and insecurities to sit with you. It’s an album about saying “no”. It’s an album about saying “YES”. It’s an album that is a past, present and future letter to myself.”
Dear Happy is said to chronicle Aplin’s life, and "the experiences and cultures she has been inspired by whilst touring and travelling the world over the past couple of years," explains a press release.
The fourthcoming album has been made in collaboration with a string of high profile producers, including Mike Spencer (Tom Walker, Zara Larsson, Years & Years), Lostboy (Dua Lipa, Becky Hill, Sigala), The Barn Productions (Lewis Capaldi, Dean Lewis) and 5YA (Sigrid).
Alpin's latest single 'Losing Me', featuring JP Cooper, has met international success this year. It was featured in 36 New Music Friday Spotify playlists including the UK, achieving multi-million streams.
