The singer will debut her new material, as well as perform re-interpretations of Cocteau Twins songs, at Bath Pavillion on Saturday August 4. The show is as a warm-up gig for her two sold-out nights at the Royal Festival Hall in London later in August, as part of this year’s Antony Hegarty-curated Meltdown festival.

Since the Cocteau Twins’ split in 1998, Fraser has worked with a range of artists including The Future Sound of London, Craig Armstrong and Massive Attack – with whom she performed their classic track “Teardrop” from their 1998 album Mezzanine.

Fraser says she has an album’s worth of new material. It has not been confirmed when this will be released. Speaking of the physical strain involved in her singing, she said that performing Cocteau Twins songs was “like an endurance test” before adding, “I don’t intend to do that again. I’ve been using my voice more gently.”
