Vashti Bunyan is set to release a new album in October.

‘Heartleap’ will come out on October 6 via FatCat. It follows her 1970 debut ‘Just Another Diamond Day’ and 2005’s comeback album ‘Lookaftering’. The new album was produced by Bunyan herself and was primarily recorded in her own studio.

The release of the album will be supported by a UK tour, which starts at Birmingham MAC on October 7, with two shows at London St Pancras Church (8-9), Farndale The Band Room (11) and Manchester St Philip’s Church (12).

The Newcastle-born Vashti Bunyan was discovered by The Rolling Stones’ manager Andrew Loog Oldham. She released her first single, ‘Some Things Just Stick in Your Mind’, written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, in 1965. Discouraged by poor sales of her first album, she stopped releasing music, but the album gained a cult following. ‘Just Another Diamond Day’ was re-issued in 2000 and she has since worked with Devendra Banhart and Animal Collective.

Vashti Bunyan plays:

Birmingham MAC (October 7)
London St. Pancras Church (8-9)
Farndale (11)
Manchester St. Philip’s Church (12)
