Booking now Kae Tempest announces 2022 UK and Ireland tour

It comes on the back of new album ‘The Line Is A Curve’.

After announcing details of new album ‘The Line Is A Curve’ earlier this week, Kae Tempest has now detailed a UK and Irish headline tour for 2022.

The new album, set for release on 8th April on Fiction Records, has been previewed by the song ‘More Pressure’, featuring Brockhampton’s Kevin Abstract.

“The Line Is A Curve is about letting go,” Kae said in a statement. “Of shame, anxiety, isolation and falling instead into surrender. Embracing the cyclical nature of time, growth, love. This letting go can hopefully be felt across the record. In the musicality, the instrumentation, the lyricism, the delivery, the cover art. In the way it ends where it begins and begins where it ends.

They added: “I want people to feel welcomed into this record, by me, the person who made it, and I have let go of some of my airier concerns. I feel more grounded in what I’m trying to do, who I am as an artist and as a person and what I have to offer. I feel less shame in my body because I am not hiding from the world anymore.”
