Ray LaMontagne Returns To UK

Ray LaMontagne Returns To UK

Uncut favourite Ray Lamontagne has announced a full UK tour to start this October at st David's in Cardiff.

Following on from a universally accliamed set of sell-out shows earlier this year, including two nights at London's Hammersmith Apollo, the singer will tour after his second album "Till The Sun Turns Black" is officially released in the UK.

Already released in the US, and available in larger record stores, Uncut describes it as "a brave and rewarding record" in it's three-star review back in February.

Working with Ethan Johns, who's also responsible for much of Ryan Adam's output, as well as LaMontagnes UK Top 10 debut "Trouble," the album is a tad bleaker, but still has an element of upbeat Southern soul.

May 7, sees a third single "Jolene" to be released from "Trouble," which has now sold over 400,000 copies in the UK.

Cardiff, St David’s (October 16)

Some more thoughts on Kate Bush and Alice Gerrard

On Sunday, Kate Bush inadvertently staged a one-woman assault on the British charts. This week, 11 records in the Official UK Albums Chart are by Bush – not bad, really, for a woman who has only really released nine new studio albums in the past 36 years.
