Bartees Strange announces dates for his 2023 UK and Ireland headline tour, with tickets going on sale today at 10am GMT. Taking place this April, he will play some of the UK and Ireland’s most renowned venues including London’s brand-new independent music space, Lafayette, Nottingham’s The Bodega, and Dublin’s iconic Workman’s. Bartees will also open for label-mates The National on their upcoming European tour.
The tour is in support of Bartees’ 4AD debut album Farm To Table. Released last year to huge critical acclaim, it includes the rags-to-riches tale ‘Wretched’, the hopeful ‘Heavy Heart’, the unapologetically braggadocious banger ‘Cosigns’, and the mournful ‘Hold the Line’.
Where his 2020 debut record Live Forever introduced the experiences and places that shaped Bartees (Flagey Brussels, Mustang Oklahoma), Farm to Table zeros in on the people – specifically his family – and those closest to him on his journey so far. With his career firmly on the ascent, Farm to Table examines Bartees’ constantly shapeshifting relationship with life post-Live Forever. It also speaks to a deeper lore that says, don’t forget where you came from, and this album is why. Always remembering where he came from, across 10 songs Bartees is celebrating the past, moving towards the future, and fully appreciating the present.
