As the April 28th release of her eagerly anticipated new album ‘Blood Orange’ approaches, Freya Ridings announces details of a major UK and Ireland tour in support of the record. The ‘Blood Orange’ tour will represent Freya’s first full scale headline tour in four years and culminates with a 5000-capacity homecoming show at London’s Eventim Apollo.

Recent weeks have seen Freya return in style as she looks to build upon the #3 chart position and Gold-certified success of her self-titled debut album. The BRIT Award nominated singer-songwriter returned to the upper reaches of the charts with ‘Weekends’ which became her third highest charting single to date after the smash hits and fan favourites ‘Lost Without You’ and ‘Castles’. A Radio 1 Tune of the Week, ‘Weekends’ also became a major airplay hit with an array of key playlists including Radio 2, Capital and Virgin. The album has also been previewed by the songs ‘Face in the Crowd’, ‘Can I Jump?’ and ‘Perfect’.
The album campaign has also seen Freya remind fans of the majestic vocal ability and elegant stage presence that have become hallmarks of her live shows, as demonstrated by an appearance on The Graham Norton Show as well as two performances filmed live at Alexandra Palace. She will celebrate the release of ‘Blood Orange’ by playing a short run of very intimate outstore shows, before her summer festival adventures include Glastonbury, Tunes in the Dunes, Hideaway, Hardwick and The Big Feastival.
The ‘Blood Orange’ album is available to pre-order or pre-save HERE.
