The new dates follow a sold-out U.K. tour earlier this year and have been announced to coincide with the release of her new single Down by the Water.
Amy, who is currently in the midst of festival season playing to huge crowds across Europe, said: “It has been such a crazy year. The music industry has changed so drastically that I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I have to say I’m blown away by the strength of the live music scene. I feel like this year has been my busiest year ever for live shows; I have been all over the place playing so many amazing places in front of so many wonderful fans. Something that has struck me this year is the really positive feedback I’ve received from the stripped down part of the shows.
I always worried that people would get bored without my band thrashing away in the background but it’s been quite the opposite. The same goes for the feedback on my new album, Under Stars. People seemed to be most excited by the stripped down acoustic songs. With all of this in mind, and my love for getting out there and performing live, I’ve decided to go on a very special acoustic tour. There will only be a handful of dates in smaller, intimate venues. It’ll be back to basics but I think it will make for a really special tour. I can’t wait to see you there!”
Described as “uplifting power-pop indie” by Metro and “extraordinary… Macdonald’s strongest album since her 2007 debut”, Under Stars reached No.2 in the U.K. album charts, and is Amy’s fourth top 5 album in the U.K. This success has been equalled internationally, with the album also debuting at No.2 and No.1 in the German and Swiss album charts respectively.
The beautiful and powerful new single – accompanied by a picturesque video shot on the idyllic Isle of Sheppey – features backing vocals from Juliet Roberts, who also joined Amy at her recent sold out Royal Albert Hall show.
