Richard Hawley has announced his largest UK headline show to date this autumn.

The singer, who releases his new album 'Standing At The Sky's Edge' on May 7, will headline London's O2 Academy Brixton on October 3.

'Standing At The Sky's Edge' is the follow-up to his 2009 effort 'Truelove's Gutter' and contains a total of nine tracks.

Hawley also recently collaborated with Arctic Monkeys on their new B-side 'You And I', scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch the video for the track.
