We’re delighted to be working with Jens Lekman again – in Manchester and Leeds
Jens Lekman recently wrapped up a sold out solo tour of the US where he played new material live for the first time ever. As he preps a new album for 2017, he’s announced another run of headline dates, including of the UK and Scandinavia in March and April 2017.
Tour support for both shows comes from The Dove & The Wolf. The Dove & The Wolf consists of the joint songwriting team of Paloma Gil and Lou Hayat, who have been playing together for more than 10 years. I Don’t Know What To Feel was recorded and produced by Dave Hartley (The War On Drugs, Nightlands) and Nick Krill (The Spinto Band, Teen Men), at Dave’s studio in Fishtown, Philadelphia in March 2016.
After spending 12 months across 2014 and 2015 touring with musicians like Rachael Yamagata, Butch Walker and Hemming, the duo had no intention of slowing down. ‘When we packed our things in Philadelphia and returned to Paris last September, we thought we would be back in America soon after,’ Lou says. ‘We had just started working on our first album in LA when our one-year visas expired. Our lawyer told us it would probably take a month, maybe a month and a half to get back.’ It took five.
Special guest in Manchester only is Michael Nau. Michael Nau is from the softly-softly school, allowing life to unfold at its own pace: if the UK and mainland Europe didn’t know who he was, they’d come around it to eventually. Now that Full Time Hobby have decided his exquisite solo record Mowing deserves to be his first official release over here, that time has arrived.
